Thinking Theologically About Wealth, Including Money

Carol Johnston notes in this essay that money and wealth are notoriously difficult topics for most North American Christians to think about theologically.

Carol Johnston notes in this essay that money and wealth are notoriously difficult topics for most North American Christians to think about theologically. For this reason, she seeks answers to several critical questions on the topic. What is "wealth"? What does wealth have to do with that which Jesus called an "abundant life"? What do we need for an abundant life, and what does that have to do with money? Johnston is Assistant Professor of Theology and Culture at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Director of the Faith, Wealth and Community Leadership Project.
