Even Good Theologians Do Bad Economics

CJay Engel at The Reformed Libertarian has begun a series of articles that address the rising concern that libertarian Christians often have regarding the social/political shift to the left of pastors, theologians, and other Christian social leaders. More specifically, he addresses the work of Tim Keller, somebody who by no stretch of the imagination is a hardcore leftist. Keller, to his credit, has the tendency to make friends on both sides of the Christian political aisle. And because he has a large following on the conservative theological side, he has a huge influence on how people think about economics, culture, labor, and a range of issues.

It’s certainly worth the time to read CJay’s analysis of Keller. He’s already declared there are more articles on the horizon, but reading each of these is worth the time:


LCI posts articles representing a broad range of views from authors who identify as both Christian and libertarian. Of course, not everyone will agree with every article, and not every article represents an official position from LCI. Please direct any inquiries regarding the specifics of the article to the author.
