The Wages of Peace

How to Confront Economic Inequality and Love Your Neighbor Well
  • By Brian Humphreys
Product Description
It's getting harder and harder to get by.

Inflation. Stagnant wages. Spiraling costs of living. Even in the world's wealthiest nation, it is too hard to earn enough money to thrive without tremendous privilege or luck. When so many people are struggling, what can we do?

The Wages of Peace offers an empathetic, informed perspective on today's economy and the difficulty of getting by. Reporting back from his work in community development, Brian Humphreys unpacks the core needs of low-income households and communities, starting with living-wage jobs. He offers practical steps for how the church can address complex socioeconomic challenges and equips aspiring peacemakers to talk about money, work, and well-being. This includes confronting where our theologies of wealth and work have come up short--when we put profits over people, we pay the price in despair and violence.
Jesus calls us to seek shalom in the marketplace and neighborhood. It's time to dismantle inequality and work for an equitable peace.
