What’s Happening with Our Economy?

What is happening on Wall Street? How did this happen and what should we, as Christians, be doing?

The Thoughtful Christian has produced a one-session study that explores these and related questions. While this study does not pretend to provide stock market tips or to give answers to an economic disaster that will be analyzed and understood in due course, it does explain in broad terms what is happening and why. Additionally, the author offers basic Christian ethical principles that all Christians, from wherever we sit on the political spectrum, must keep in mind as solutions are considered. This study calls you to ask yourself: in this world of globalization and constant change, how can you and your church work to help the poor, be stewards of creation, and work toward being followers of Jesus Christ in our individual vocations?

Study author Brent Waters is professor of Christian Social Ethics and director of the Jerre L. and Mary Joy Stead Center for Ethics and Values at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois.
