The relationship between contemporary theologians and economists has tended to range from frosty to indifferent. Economists usually relegate theological reasoning to the realm of private spirituality, viewing it as holding little relevance for the analysis of markets and economic activity. Theologians, on the other hand, often make lofty and idealized pronouncements about economics with very little understanding of the economic realities they are critiquing. This sometimes fraught, sometimes apathetic relationship is especially troubling given the broad consensus, among both religious and non-religious scholars, that—among the profusion of business and economic-related problems of the last decade—many could be classified as moral crises.

Theology and Economics seeks to fill the gap in understanding, respect, and communication between economists and theologians and set a uniquely collaborative example. Jeremy Kidwell and Sean Doherty have brought together a group of prominent Christian economists and theologians to discuss how we might transform economic and theological reasoning from antagonistic forces into tools with which to cultivate more just and moral economies in the twenty-first century.

About the Author:

Jeremy Kidwell is a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Edinburgh, UK, where he completed a PhD in theological ethics. His doctoral research was on the theology of work, and he is currently researching Christian responses to climate change.

Reverend Dr. Sean Doherty is Director of Studies and Tutor and Lecturer in Ethics at St Mellitus College, UK. His most recent publication is Theology and Economic Ethics. He has also written on medical and sexual ethics, and is a member of the Grove Ethics group.

Review:

“The work-as-a-whole concludes with: an editorial summation, selective bibliography, index, and notes on the contributors that afford brief introductions to the individual essayists. ... the level of specialized jargon in many of the essays probably ensures this book will be of most benefit to professional theologians and economists and to institutions supporting seminaries or graduate economics programs.” (Justin Lillard, Journal of Markets & Morality, Vol. 19 (1), May, 2016)

'This is a stimulating collection of new essays from leading thinkers across different disciplines. It addresses the scope of fruitful dialogue and collaboration between theologians and economists in their pursuit of the common good, providing a valuable and accessible resource for both the general reader and specialist.' - Ian Smith, Senior Lecturer in the School of Economics and Finance, University of St. Andrews, UK

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 288 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.7in.The relationship between contemporary theologians and economists has ranged from frosty to indifferent.
