Engaging Economics: New Testament Scenarios and Early Christian Reception
Longenecker, Bruce W. and Kelly D. Liebengood, editors

Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 2009 pp. 336. $32.00

Description: Engaging Economics exposes economic dimensions of the theology of the early Jesus movement, as reflected both in the texts of the New Testament and in the reception of those texts within the patristic era. Under these two considerations, the contributions demonstrate that an economic dimension was an integral component of this early movement and indicate how, in later centuries, that economic dimension was either further developed or ignored altogether. Contributors: Stephen C. Barton Dr. Brian J. Capper David J. Downs Christopher M. Hays David G. Horrell Mariam Kamell Robert A. Kitchen John S. Kloppenborg Aaron J. Kuecker Kelly D. Liebengood Bruce W. Longenecker Grant Macaskill Peter Oakes David E. Wilhite

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Early Christian Literature, Literature
