With this site my story is public—prompted in part by a Grand Rapids Press reporter who recently asked in passing how things were going for me at the seminary. My less than forthcoming response led to further questions and a realization on my part that ... more

John Bolt ISBN-13/EAN:

...
With scholarly passion and pastoral wisdom, tempered by the insight of economists, John Bolt presents a winsome case for how God uses the market economy to meet human needs.
Written to raise questions and invite further discussion, Bolt offers a robust Reformed perspective on stewardship, property, capital, and morality. From this, he explores a variety of issues, including the human need for liberty, the challenge of consumerism, concerns about fairness and justice, and evangelicalism's mixed history in applying Christian compassion in politics and economics.
What stands in the way of the human quest for improvement? How does the reality of sin affect the degree to which we can achieve economic shalom today? And despite every good intention, how do we avoid the horrific track record of failed utopias that have spilled oceans of blood and created mountains of misery? Read, learn, and respond as Bolt leads a rousing Reformed discussion of faith, work, and economics.

Praise For Economic Shalom A marvelously stimulating book. John Bolt is correct: there is much "underbrush" that has to be cleared away in Christian discussions of the free market, both pro and con. Bolt does a lot of the clearing, and he does so with much theological wisdom (drawing helpfully on the 19th-century neo-...

Fortunately, this is no longer the case, thanks to the leadership and labor of John Bolt, professor of systematic theology at Calvin Theological Seminary. Not only did he make available one of the most indispensable systematic theologies a library can hold (Bavinck's four-volume Reformed Dogmatics), he also supplemented it with an abridged one-volume edition as well as Bavinck's Essays on Religion, Science, and Society. Time well spent, indeed. Any one of these could be regarded as a crowning achievement. What a delight, then, that Bolt has compiled another gem on Bavinck.

...
Bolt likens these to a building's foundations, its superstructure, and then a tour through its various "rooms.
...
But Bolt isn't a mere historical theologian; he's a contemporary systematician, so he has an eye to apply Bavinck's insights to current issues. In one sense, this is the easiest part of his job.
...
Hobby horses derail many less skillful and less mature writers, but Bolt keeps this sort of thing short, infrequent, and constructive.
Unique Triumph
Early on Bolt admits to some difficulty in finding his own voice: "My own thinking has been so profoundly shaped by [Bavinck's] that I often find myself repeating his words as my own" (19).
...
Coupled with the fact that Bavinck never finished-much less published-his volume on Reformed ethics, Bolt has achieved a unique triumph.
