- Outlines both the ecological and social rationale for why economics should be a matter of faith and practice for Christians, and a theological framework and hermeneutic approach that “reads the Bible economically in order to read the economy biblically.”
- Explains the meaning of Sabbath Economics; explores the roots of this vision in the Hebrew Bible’s primal narratives of Creation, Exodus and Manna; and presents several studies that trace the footprints of Sabbath Economics through both Testaments.
- Looks at key aspects of our dominant economic cosmology, and of alternatives that privilege community before capital.
- Overviews the Sabbath Economics Household Covenant of key practices for contemporary lifestyle, with an emphasis on how we earn, bank, invest and give our money.
