If You’re Interested in Economics

by Paul Tautges | April 17, 2020 9:30 am

Recently, I reached out to the folks at Westminster Books to ask if they had any book recommendations for someone who wanted to learn more about economics (not financial stewardship/budgeting/etc) from a biblical worldview. Here’s their response.

Hi Paul, thanks for reaching out! Here are a few resources that come to mind:

From a Christian Perspective:

The 2nd and 3rd recommendations are both resources from the Chalmers Center, the group that also produced When Helping Hurts[2]. Although their main focus is poverty alleviation, I’d consider them the foremost experts on economics coming from a solidly biblical foundation.

From a non-Christian Perspective:

Hope this is helpful!
