THE 314 Theology of Work and Wealth

Students preparing to serve God in a vocation that takes them into the world of business need a firm understanding of the nature of work as designed by God for human flourishing. This course will consider how biblical teaching and theology regarding work, wealth, and productive endeavors relate to the purpose of humans in the original creation; how these purposes have been affected by the fall; how the concepts of scarcity, productivity, and wealth are understood from various Christian and non-Christian perspectives; various possibilities for redemptive Christian engagement in the world of commerce and business; and how the implications of human activity in the eternal state inform a Christian perspective on work and wealth in the present. 3 credits.
