Jesus’ Economy

Jesus’ Economy
A Biblical View of Poverty, the Currency of Love, and a Pattern for Lasting Change
By John D. Barry

You know people around the world are struggling.  A homeless man holds a sign that reads, “Anything helps.”  A poor child lives in a slum swarming with flies.  A refugee mother is on the brink of starvation.  You ask yourself, “But what can I do about such big problems?”

You’re looking for long-term solutions. John D. Barry shares incredible, and often shocking, stories about working among the impoverished and unchurched in the U.S. and abroad.  And since Barry is a Bible scholar, Jesus’ Economy is also deeply rooted in the Scriptures.  It is a personal, sometimes funny, often heartbreaking account that presents a revolutionary pattern for lasting change.

Jesus’ Economy is based on self-sacrifice.  His currency is love. It’s called Jesus’ Economy because it’s about creating a spiritual and physical economy for those who need it most.  Here is a thoroughly biblical and compassionate pattern for addressing issues of poverty and offering the hope of the gospel.  Jesus’ Economy:

  • Shows how you as an individual can best encourage renewal in your community.
  • Demonstrates how your church community or any group can alleviate poverty.
  • Presents a unified plan for creating jobs, spreading the gospel, and meeting basic needs.
  • Focuses on community development and sustainability – lasting change, globally and locally.

Jesus’ Economy is a call to address our own spiritual poverty – as people who can too easily become distant from Christ – and it is a call to address the physical poverty all around us in a smart and sustainable way.  Jesus’ teachings show that with simple, everyday choices, you can make the world a better place and create enduring change.  Here’s how to live Jesus’ economy – a currency of love.
