I will agree with you that it seems, going in, you’re confronting a bit of bias (“St Gregory, ON THE OTHER HAND, was the most accomplished rhetorician of the 4th century Church…”). But that is okay and to be expected. We all have our biases towards what we already know and believe. Nothing wrong with that as long as one has an open mind as well.

I’m still waiting on my turn at the library for the book you recommended (The Bottom Billion. Someone has apparently kept it much longer than they’re supposed to. This reminds me that I’ll have to give them a call to find out what’s happening with that.

Like MIT above, I look forward to your assessment. Also, like MIT, I think modern religious thoughts on economics comes much closer to matching material written by Smith than it does the Bible.

I have become convinced over the last few years that our modern Church views more of it’s economic ideas from Adam Smith and political views from John Locke than we do from the actual Scriptures.

I think we have a world view that is hard to shake when we look at the Word.
