About this product
- DescriptionThrough an analysis of Christian communities in the United States, Canada, and Costa Rica, this book analyzes how religious groups talk about the politics surrounding ecomic life. Amy Reylds examines how these Christian organizations speak about trade and the ecomy as moral and value-laden spaces, deserving ethical reflection and requiring political action. She reveals the ways in which religious communities have asked people to engage in new approaches to thinking about the market and how they have worked to create alternative networks and policies governing ecomic and social life.
