MEDIA REVIEWS
...this is the most profound book on the boundary of theology and economics in the past couple of decades. It has a depth of perspective, a scope of scholarship and a discernment that is rare in this field. * The Christian Century *
...well-organized and researched...an in-depth study of the history of economic thought. * Library Journal *
Economists can learn a lot about their 'science' by reading this book, and, at the same time, enjoy the experience. -- James M. Buchanan, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 1986
This is the sort of thought-provoking book that every member of ACE should read and consider ....I recommend Nelson highly.... * The Bulletin Of The Association Of Christian Economists *
... it squarely confronts the fact that the intelligible value of economic theology-Progress-is itself now in crisis.... * Reason *
Nelson can be commended for attempting such a wide-ranging survey of Western intellectual thought and for challenging readers to evaluate for themselves the place of modern economic analysis in the scheme of intellectual inquiry. -- Robert A. Black, Houghton College, Christian Scholar's Review
