In Wealth and Wisdom, businessman Jake Barnett develops a solid theology of God’s generous purposes for the material world. At the heart of the Scriptures, says the author, is a bold call for us to integrate economics—including our personal economics—with love and community. To do this requires a refusal to follow the empty materialism of our age. As we align our lives with God’s designs for wealth, we will experience freedom to live according to our God-given callings. After reading this profound, thoughtful, and practical book, you will have a robust biblical worldview of wealth and economics that will enable you to live faithfully for God in any economic system.
