Although the language of "economic justice" is used right across the political spectrum today, there is no consensus about what it means. Secular perspectives are in deep and confusing disarray. This is of little help to the poor or the rich. Can the Bible do better? Most certainly, according to this book. Whereas secular approaches tend to focus either on justice in production and exchange ("free trade" versus "fair trade") or justice in distribution (equality versus freedom), a biblically-rooted account shows that both of these aspects are central to economic justice. The book indicates how this understanding applies to contemporary topics such as the relationships between borrowers and lenders, and the use of monopoly power.

About the Author:

Andrew Hartropp is a church minister and an economist. He lectured in economics for five years at Brunel University, West London and has doctorates in both Economics (University of Southampton) and Christian Ethics (King's College, London). He is currently a Church of England Curate in Watford, Hertfordshire and has published widely on topics in Christianity and economics.

Review:

"Economics is widely regarded as the dismal science. Theology colludes with this view when it fails to appreciate the positive potential of economics and business in todays world. Andrew Hartropp does not suffer from this failure. This book integrates theology and economics to formulate a view of economic justice that is of great relevance to the global economy. It will appeal to economists, theologians and business leaders alike." -- Peter S. Heslam, Transforming Business, University of Cambridge "Fairness and justice are moving into the centre of economics, and in this book Andy Hartropp, a fine economist and theologian, shows why at the deepest level." -- Alan Storkey, Christian social theorist, author of several books, including Transforming Economics (1986) and A Christian Social Perspective (1979) "Christians need to think more carefully than they sometimes have about what a commitment to justice requires in the modern context. Hartropps book is a serious contribution to this important issue." -- Michael Banner, Fellow, Trinity College, Cambridge
