An Invitation

The purpose of this blog is to foster a new idea in blogging- an interactive book study. We’ll be going through The Clashing Worlds of Economics and Faith by James Halteman.

Dr. Halteman is a Christian professor of economics at Wheaton College and he will also be looking in on this discussion.

If you’d like to participate, you need to do 3 things.

1. Email me, or comment and give us your email address. I’ll send you the initial invitation that explains what this study is all about.

2. Buy the book (it’s available for less than $5 at Amazon or Half.com).

3. Participate on the blog. I would like to have different participants write posts to start discussion on different chapters.

If you have no economics background, great! Economics is a way about thinking about the choices people make, and not just the economy. We’ll be posting some links and resources here to help better clarify the difficult topics.

We’ll have representatives of different schools, seminaries, and backgrounds. All of us have a couple things in common: We are Christians, and we want to know how to think about economic issues and better understand how we should interact with the world around us.

Welcome!
