Christianity has always had a difficult relationship with the world of money. Through developing sophisticated understandings of the wealth-creating capacity of capital, Christian theologians, philosophers and financiers exerted influence upon the development of the international financial systems that revolutionized the way the world uses capital.
Subtitled How Banking and Finance Can Serve the Common Good, this book underscores the different ways in which Christians have helped to develop the financial systems that have helped millions escape poverty. Gregg illustrates how Christian faith and reason can shape financial practices and banking institutions in ways that restore integrity to our troubled financial systems.
