In the Beginning was Economics

Our lives are a response to God's Genesis 3 command.
April 10th, 2014

Cardus Senior Fellow Paul Williams, speaking with Cardus's Naomi Biesheuvel, sets out a program for understanding economic life which links our basic character as people made in the image of God to work with features of our modern economy, including corporations, profits, and the laws governing them. Williams notes that while we need to read economic life through Genesis 3, we must start with Genesis 1 to truly understand what the gospel has to say about economic life.


Dr. Paul S. Williams is the Chief Executive of the British and Foreign Bible Society.
