Neoliberalism and the Biblical Voice PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Neoliberalism and the Biblical Voice free pdf In this book, Paul Babie and Michael Trainor compare our contemporary preoccupation with ownership and consumption with the role of property and possessions in the biblical world, contending that Christian theology provides a valuable entry point to discussing the issue of private property-a neoliberal tool with the capacity to shape the world in which we live by exercising control over the planet's resources. Babie and Trainor draw on the Gospel According to Luke, arguing that this first century CE document offers a radical, challenging view of wealth and possessions that in the 21st century continues to be as relevant as ever. By placing the Gospel of Luke into conversation with contemporary views on private property and consumer culture, Babie and Trainor develop legal, philosophical and theological insights into how our desire for ethical living fares in the neoliberal marketplace.
