Instructor: Economic Justice and Christian Conscience HTE641 / H

In the age of globalization, how can economic relationships more fully reflect God’s concern for justice? This course looks at this question from the perspective that “economic faithfulness” is defined as joyful response to God’s bounty and goodness, and “economic justice” as practices that facilitate everyone having enough according to God’s shalom. By exploring and examining various perspectives on the meaning of justice, economic “development” in the global village, economic systems and theories, economics and ecology, business ethics, economics in the church, and economic faithfulness for individual Christians, students will develop ethical frameworks that guide their integration of scriptural teaching about money, lifestyle choices, and spirituality.
