Making Christianity Relevant to Economic Scholarship

Editorial

Abstract

This special issue of the Journal of Markets & Morality focuses on selected papers originally presented at the conference, “Christianity and Economics,” held at Baylor University in November 2002. The conference attracted scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including history, theology, philosophy, law, political science, psychology, sociology, and economics, to examine whether Christian beliefs make a difference in academic scholarship. With the ascendance of neoclassical economics as the dominant paradigm, most Christian economists have labored outside of the mainstream. That is not to imply that their contributions have been insignificant, but that they have had only tangential impact on the profession as a whole. The conference was aimed at informing the academy of the role of the Christian economist in relating the importance and practical relevance of faith-informed scholarship. These papers provide a sample of the scholarship presented at the conference.
