Compassionate Capitalism is a historical look at the birth and development of capitalism. You will learn how capitalism first developed as God worked among the Hebrew people in Old Testament times. The resultant economic principles spread with Christianity and transformed the Western world. Ove the years, conflicts arose, wars ensued, and struggles continue today over the just distribution of wealth. It remains for us to apply the principles of capitalism with Godly compassion. We need a revolution of compassionate capitalism!
