The Economics of Neighborly Love

Stream or download the audio recording from this breakout session titled The Economics of Neighborly Love with Tom Nelson that was delivered at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. This breakout explores a robust theological bridge from the scriptural text to wise economic thought. A close exegetical link between Jesus’s New Testament teaching on the Great Commandment and the Torah’s advocacy of human fruitfulness will be examined. A rich theology of human fruitfulness as it relates to intimacy, productivity, and neighborly love is considered with an emphasis not only on fostering Christian compassion, but also on building economic capacity.
