Our culture urges us to invest for our own betterment. Scripture urges us to invest for the betterment of others.
Greg Forster is the director of the Oikonomia Network at the Center for Transformational Churches and an affiliate professor of biblical and systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author of nine books and of numerous scholarly and popular articles and the editor of six books. His primary scholarly interest is studying how the structures of culture and civilization (family, work, education, business, politics, etc.) respond to the challenge of the gospel and the ambiguous tensions of religious freedom, in order to equip the church to be good citizens of both the kingdom of God and our human communities.
