For the past few years, a select group of Christian social thinkers have engaged in dialogue with free-market economists concerning the morality of market activity. This friendly interdisciplinary exchange inspired the conception of a new subdiscipline that sought to synthesize central aspects of theology and economics, thereby giving rise to a new body of scholarship termed economic personalism. This essay introduces economic personalism in its historical, philosophical, and practical components.
