I have just completed my mammoth series on the Household of God. (Man oh man did that spiral out of control.) So what next? I’ve been involved in some rather extended discussions on economic issues at Jesus Creed the past few weeks. I’ve had folks tell me they would like me to do more writing on economic issues here. That suits me fine and it dovetails well with some other stuff I’m working on.
I expect to begin by doing a few short posts on the “image of God” and economics. From there I’ll move into common fallacies Christians believe concerning economics. Where I go after there, I’m not sure. I’m thinking of blogging through Bulls, Bears & Golden Calves: Applying Christian Ethic in Economics by John Stapleford, a professor of mine from graduate school days. I not sure about that yet. I also want to do some blogging on Kenneth Bailey’s new book Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels, which will be released next week. We will see how it goes.
In the short term, I’m headed out of town to the Chicago burbs for an ACT 3 Forum on God’s Righteousness and the Obedience of Faith. I’ve been looking forward to this event and I hope to have some blog posts about it. So outside of blogging about this event I’m going easy on composing any other posts this week. Next week I expect to begin with the “image of God” and economics.
