In this short, hard-hitting volume, Roelf Haan critiques the assumptions that underlie our current economic system and makes the case for a truly biblical alternative.The Economics of Honor
walks through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, but it blazes an unfamiliar path. Through careful exegesis Haan draws economic insights from surprising passages and challenges conventional interpretations of some of Jesus' parables. Haan also draws insights from a wide-ranging number of thinkers, including John Calvin, Jacques Ellul, RenΘ Girard, Germaine Greer, and several Latin American liberation theologians.
A provocative and fascinating read, The Economics of Honor
challenges accepted economic wisdom and exchanges it for groundbreaking, well-reasoned arguments on how the Bible would have us live today.

"From the very beginning and throughout, this book is astonishing! Roelf Haan's concept of economics is biblically radical, positively revolutionary, and hope-fully world changing. Will Christians pay attention and put his ideas into practice? You can help determine the answer to that question."
"A remarkable, thought-provoking book, The Economics of Honor seeks to understand various biblical texts as a message for modern economic life. Roelf Haan is like an enthusiastic good friend who takes you by the arm to show you the treasures he has found. In this case they are biblical treasures that we have often passed by without noticing their great depth, their illuminating newness, and their relevance to our present wounded economic reality."
