In this short, hard-hitting volume, Roelf Haan critiques the assumptions that underlie our current economic system and makes the case for a truly biblical alternative. / The Economics of Honor walks through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, but it blazes an unfamiliar path. Through careful exegesis Haan draws economic insights from surprising passages and challenges conventional interpretations of some of Jesus' parables. Haan also draws insights from a wide-ranging number of thinkers, including John Calvin, Jacques Ellul, Ren Girard, Germaine Greer, and several Latin American liberation theologians. / A provocative and fascinating read, The Economics of Honor challenges accepted economic wisdom and exchanges it for groundbreaking, well-reasoned arguments on how the Bible would have us live today.
