Many important contemporary debates cross economics and religion, in turn raising questions about the relationship between the two fields. This book, edited by a leader in the new interdisciplinary field of economics and religion and with contributions by experts on different aspects of therelationship between economics and Christianity, maps the current state of scholarship and points to new directions for the field. It covers the history of the relationship between economics and Christianity, economic thinking in the main Christian traditions, and the role of religion in economicdevelopment, as well as new work on the economics of religious behavior and religious markets and topics of debate between economists and theologians.It is essential reading for economists concerned with the foundations of their discipline, historians, moral philosophers, theologians seeking to engage with economics, and public policy researchers and practitioners.
Paul Oslington is Professor of Economics at the Australian Catholic University with a joint appointment in the Faculty of Business and the Faculty of Theology.
