Release Pending: Eden’s Bridge: The Marketplace in Creation and Mission (Wipf & Stock Publishers)
Expected availability: (around) January 1, 2012
It has been suggested that, given the importance of articulating a Biblically-sound theology of the marketplace, I host a series of informal round table discussions to review Eden’s Bridge. The book establishes a Biblical foundation for the marketplace as an institution of God and His intent for it in creation and His mission in the world. We live in very exciting times and I believe we are about to see God move even more mightily, even miraculously, in the marketplace.
I would like to determine the interest level in having six, two-hour meet ups in the North Atlanta (GA) area. Most likely we would meet at 9 a.m. on Saturdays at two week intervals, beginning around the first of February. This would allow time to think on, discuss, and revisit the book in its entirety in a thorough way. Pre-registered participants, or those interested in pre-ordering the book, would be able to purchase Eden’s Bridge directly from the author at a 20% discounted purchase price (to be determined).
The series would be as follows:
Eden’s Bridge: The Marketplace in Creation and Mission
Session 1 – Introducing a Biblical Theology of the Marketplace (seven propositions)
Session 2 – An Economic Walk in the Garden (the marketplace in the creation narrative)
Session 3 – Key Economic Models in the Bible & Theological Concerns
Session 4 – Relevant Ancient (Biblical) and Modern Terminology
Session 5 – Issues of Redemption of the Marketplace
Session 6 – issues of the Integration of Market and Mission
Let me know if such a series would interest you or how I might consider structuring it differently than I have suggested to be most effective.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
