Sometimes you feel John was out in the weeds, but with as much "financial information" out there, he really has to. Very informative and a good expository work, John covers more than you would expect in a book of this length.
Economic Shalom : John Bolt :
An absolutely great book for anyone who wants to examine the connection between scripture and economics, or understand "social justice" as it relates or does not to scripture. Very well written. Takes what could be a fall-asleep subject and turns it into a hard-to put-it-down. Format: Paperback.
I struggled through this volume which addressed such issues as Economics, Morality, Stewardship, Capital, and Consumerism. Topics that do not get much thought among the general landscape of Reformed theology.

In the opening chapter Bolt comes to a definition of Economics that rears itself throughout the rest of the book. Bolt goes on to develop this definition and the principles that govern human flourishing which leads the reader to a clear understanding of the topic at hand by the time the epilogue is reached. Perhaps one of the most intriguing chapters in the volume is chapter 3 titled, It Takes a Village. I find this chapter most helpful because of the vocation I find myself in and the family I am helping to flourish.
Bolt goes on to describe, in no great detail, the idea of sphere sovereignty which comes to us from the brilliant neo-Calvinist mind of Abraham Kuyper. Overall this volume was well put together and easy for the reader to follow along the thought patterns of John Bolt. While terms are defined and ideas worked out in all the chapters, personally I found myself lost in the myriad of ideas which come along with economics.
In all the chapters John Bolt seems to point to Christ over and again which makes this volume not only a primer on economics and human flourishing but on Christ and the glory due to him.

Christian Reformed Church
Popular Features. New Releases. Description This Reformed Christian primer on work and faith champions the glory of God in all of life's endeavors by tracing four key themes of economics in Christian confession and commitment and examining markers for human flourishing in the real world of economics, commerce, and markets. With scholarly passion and pastoral wisdom, tempered by the insight of economists, John Bolt presents a winsome case for how God uses the market economy to meet human needs.
Written to raise questions and invite further discussion, Bolt offers a robust Reformed perspective on stewardship, property, capital, and morality. From this, he explores a variety of issues, including the human need for liberty, the challenge of consumerism, concerns about fairness and justice, and evangelicalism's mixed history in applying Christian compassion in politics and economics.
What stands in the way of the human quest for improvement?
How does the reality of sin affect the degree to which we can achieve economic shalom today? And despite every good intention, how do we avoid the horrific track record of failed utopias that have spilled oceans of blood and created mountains of misery? Read, learn, and respond as Bolt leads a rousing Reformed discussion of faith, work, and economics.
