The Protestant Ethic Or The Spirit Of Capitalism by Kathryn D. Blanchard
Since the publication of Max Weber's classic, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, it has long been assumed that a distinctly Protestant ethos has shaped the current global economic order. Against this common consensus, Kathryn D. Blanchard argues that the theological thought of John Calvin and the Protestant movement as a whole has much to say that challenges the current incarnation of the capitalist order. This book develops an approach to Christian economic ethics that celebrates God's gift of human freedom, while at the same time acknowledging necessary, and indeed vital, limitations in the context of material and social life. Through sustained interaction with such unlikely dialogue partners as Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Deirdre McCloskey, and Muhammad Yunus, this book shows that the virtues of self-denial, neighbor love, and sympathy have been quite at home in the capitalism of the past, and can be again. Though self-interest has enjoyed several decades as the unquestioned ruling principle of American economics, other-interest is steadily coming back into view, not only among Christian ethicists, but among economists as well. This book explores the important implications of this shift in economic thinking from a theological perspective.

Reforming The Morality Of Usury by David Wayne Jones
In the early years of the sixteenth century, the Church experienced a dramatic shift in its moral perception of the practice of usury. Leaders of the continental Protestant Reformation (Lutheran, Calvinist, and Anabaptist) all grappled with the Roman Catholic Church's moral teaching on the practice of lending money at interest. Although these three theological streams addressed the same moral problem, at relatively the same time, they each responded differently. Reforming the Morality of Usury examines how the leaders of each major stream in the continental Protestant Reformation adopted a different approach to reforming moral teaching on the practice of usury.
Alister E Mcgrath And Evangelical Theology by Sung Wook Chung
Alister McGrath is one of the premier evangelical theologians of our day. In this book, leading evangelical scholars, including Gabriel Fackre, John Frame, William Abraham, Gerald Bray, and Clark Pinnock, use McGrath's work as a lens through which to offer a contemporary assessment of evangelical theology.The volume sets McGrath in context and argues that a "dynamic" brand of evangelical theology-such as what his thinking represents-is necessary for the evangelical wing of the church to be semper reformanda (always reforming). Chapters focus on the essence, identity, strengths, weaknesses, and future of evangelical theology, offering a snapshot of a movement in transition.
