vision cover economics

From the  editorial:

[The Apostle] Paul’s own letters show a remarkable interest in economic relationships, in particular toward forms of local and global mutualism under the framework of partnership and equality, where ultimately no one has either excess or lack. Mutual aid appropriate to a partnership, says Paul, is an obligation in obedience to the gospel, but still somehow voluntary as a display of love. Ancient writers did not conceptualize economics as a distinct and separate domain of life. What the Bible invites us to recover is the concrete, personal dimensions of economic relationships: our relationships to the means of production, to modes of exchange and distribution, and to the dynamics of consumption.
