Sign-up for a free lunch, free book, and great conversation as we discuss Jordan Ballor's co-authored "Abraham Kuyper on Business & Economics." Here is a brief taste of the book and its focus: 

     “…the spread of capitalist narratives, institutions and practices from ‘the West the rest’ has resulted in unprecedented increases in income and in other dimensions of human and cultural flourishing … [but}] there is also a gnawing sense that something has gone terribly wrong in the West. Families are disintegrating, communities are fragmented, and political processes are in disarray… As market expansion has spread economic growth to the rest of the world, similar results have been found for transitional economies, resulting in what some economists are calling the ‘paradox of unhappy growth.’

     “How can Kuyper help us explain the paradox of the contemporary global economy? … Kuyper viewed business and economics not as something to avoid, but rather as one of many spheres in which human beings are to fulfill their calling to steward God’s creation.”

--from the Foreward of On Business and Economics
