Webinars: Preaching Biblical Texts that Speak to Trade

Scripture has plenty to say about trade and its impact upon society. What do trade practices mean for the poorest? Does too much financial power reduce our dependency on God?

In this series of webinars, three theologians offer us expertise in listening to what biblical texts say to us now.
