Redeeming Capitalism

  • Jim Dupree


Redeeming Capitalism is an excellent primer of the practical, philosophical, and theological movement from historical to current times, reviewing the thinking that forms our contemporary view and practice of capitalism. In 13 succinct chapters, Barnes argues that capitalism should not be abandoned for another flawed economic theory but rather redeemed. Carefully integrating Scripture, case studies, and personal experience and drawing substantively on St. Thomas Aquinas’ cardinal  virtues et al, Barnes shows how the practice of capitalism has been corrupted into its current, self-focused form. Well footnoted with a seven-page bibliography, Barnes’ book draws upon both historic and contemporary sources to support his argument.
