?Theology that Works”?- This PDF (55 pages) document from Greg Forster of the Oikonomia Network?is described as ‘…an?invitation to dialogue on discipleship and work in the American church.’
The Oikonomia Network ?? is a learning community for theological educators and evangelical seminaries ? [whose aim] is to prepare future pastors for responsibilities of pastoral ministry?related to work, the economy, and cultural engagement.?
Chapter titles are:
I. Renewing Whole-Life Discipleship ? ??churches have disconnected discipleship from the largest portion of life ? our economic work in the home, in our jobs, and in communities.?
II.? Achieving Virtuous Citizenship ? ?? participating in the economy in ways distinctively shaped by the calling to stewardship is one of the best ways to manifest our discipleship, blessing our neighbours by producing economic shalom.?
III.? Stewardship and Economic Flourishing ? ?Economic flourishing has brought enormous blessings, both spiritual and theological.? But is poses a challenge as well.?
IV.? Theological and Economic Worlds Working Together ? ?The church can answer these challenges by creating critical dialogue between the theological and ecnomic spheres of thought and practice.?
V.? Answering the Call ? ?We are blessed by a growing body of movements acknowledging the need to reconnect theology and pastoral leadership with working and economic life.?
