'Christian Theology and Market Economics is a welcome and important contribution to the dialogue between serious Christian thinking and market economics.' - Bishop Robert Forsyth, Policy 'Theologians and economists are both enormously influential. Unfortunately, they tend to misunderstand, ignore, talk past, and distrust one another. Harper and Gregg aim to solve this problem by demonstrating that meaningful conversation between the disciplines is both possible and rewarding.A" They are too humble. The ten essays in this collection show that this conversation is immensely rewarding... Highly recommended.' - R.M. Whaples, Choice
