Paul Mills on a Biblical Diagnosis of the Financial Crisis

Paul Mills, ‘The Great Financial Crisis: A Biblical Diagnosis’, Cambridge Papers 20, 1 (March 2011).

The latest of the Cambridge Papers from the Jubilee Centre is by Paul Mills, and is devoted to the current financial crisis.

Here is the summary:

‘The self-destructive tendency of a debt-based financial system has been highlighted in earlier Cambridge Papers. This lesson is being retaught with a vengeance by the current financial crisis. To diagnose our current plight, this paper expounds the biblical teaching on debt, interest, and finance; explains what is really going on from a relational perspective; and draws applications for the Christian, the church, and society.’
