We are writing to you about this week’s free Kindle promotion of the Economics in the Gospels book as we celebrate the launch of our 10-part video course by the same name. Just go to the Amazon link here for your free copy.
This study is particularly relevant not from a theological or economics point of view, but rather from the ecological, which is really what drives all we do at TheoEco. Why? It seems very unlikely that the Spirit (God, Goddess, Deity, The Force, Guardian Spirit, etc.) does not have a role in our economics. This leads one to wonder what its role is in the environmental struggles the world is increasingly experiencing.
Jesus an economic actor? Most definitely, as the Gospels, and this study, clearly show. And with Christianity the theology at the center of Capitalism, it follows that Christianity is at the center of Capitalism’s ecological impact. In other words, Christianity is manifesting itself in the destruction of the world’s environment, and Jesus is somehow at the center, contrary to the examples he demonstrates in the scriptures.
It begs the question then: What if we acted a little more like Christ did when it comes to our economic practices? It seems obvious that a lifestyle more like Jesus would yield a healthier life for most people and an improved communion between mankind and the earth.
This study is an attempt to show how Jesus might see things differently than we do now - with the hope of bending the curve just a bit for those who want to live more like Christ.
We hope you’ll take us up on this offer (the study is a “quick read” and you will likely know most of the passages} with an eye towards the environmentalist in you. Also, if you were contemplating signing up for the course this is a great time to peruse the study and give you and those in your orbit a chance to get the Kindle version (a $9.99 value) which will come in handy while taking the course.
This limited time offer ends Friday, October 16th.
