Every day, people face new economic realities that affect their livelihoods, their familiesand their faith. Former brokerage-firm-executive-turned-church pastor Matthew Tennant explains both why and how to connect the endless stream of economic information with a biblical message. Beginning with an accessible and relevant primer on basic economics, Tennant then reviews biblical principles of stewardship and considers how current economies affect both individuals and the congregation as a whole. Chapters include how to preach specific economically-related messages, such as the fallacy of prosperity, simple living, and finding God when times are tough. Features sample sermons!
