The Rich in the Bible: Socio-Economic Reading of Matthew

Dr. Keciziuying Siang (Author)

The Rich in the Bible: Socio-Economic Reading of Matthew is a ground breaking research into the concept of the rich in the Bible, especially in the New Testament. The book primarily grapples with the issue of the rich in the Gospel according to Matthew, and brings out Jesus’ message for the rich – a message that addresses squarely the problem of disparity between the few rich and majority poor in the community. The book has significance in today’s global socio-economic context where accumulation of wealth by the rich has greatly affected the life of the less privileged majority in the society at the local, national and global levels. The book answers a very practical question – how to be rich in a world where majority are poor? It is a must-read book for laity, theological students, and teachers alike.
