The Poverty Of Nations

Full Product Description

In The Poverty of Nations Grudem and Asmus combine theology and economics with vision, common sense and compassion to offer a convincing perspective on the moral foundations of a just and successful economy and society that’s true to its scriptural moral foundation.

In the tradition of classical economic thinking, The Poverty of Nations shows how a free-market economy, based on private-sector initiative and with a well-defined but limited role for government, produces superior results in terms of material wealth accumulation and distribution. This book does more; the writers demonstrate the effect and need for human interaction applying moral and ethical values originating from Scripture to the political and economic system.

The authors argue that stable societies, property rights, free will, and the pursuit of happiness are not only moral values for the benefit of all, but also prerequisites for healthy long-term economic growth. Through a blend of experiential insight and logical Grudem and Asmus draw detailed political and economic conclusions with clarity of thought and originality of argument. This book will become a point of reference for future generations.

The Poverty Of Nations by Barry Asmus; Wayne Grudem was published by Crossway in August 2013 and is our 42258th best seller. The ISBN for The Poverty Of Nations is 9781433539114.

Publisher's Description

The whole world has a stake in the war against poverty and leaders across the globe are looking for a permanent solution. That's why economist Barry Asmus and theologian Wayne Grudem have teamed up to outline a robust proposal for fighting poverty on a national level. These two experts believe the solution lies in a comprehensive development plan that integrates the principles of a free market system with the Bible's teachings on social ethics. Speaking to the importance of personal freedom, the rule of law, private property, moral virtue, and education, this book offers a clear path for promoting economic prosperity and safeguarding a country's long-term stability—a sustainable solution for a world looking for the way forward.


"This book will become a standard text that we will use to train every mission team we have in 196 countries. It should be required reading in every Christian college and seminary, by every relief and mission organization, and by every local church pastor."
—Rick Warren, #1 New York Times best-selling author, The Purpose Driven Life; Pastor, Saddleback Church
