Ep. 19 - Christianity and the Rise of Capitalism
How do Christians go from the economic ethics of Jesus to endorsing the competitive pursuit of wealth? How does 'Christian Europe' end up being driven by an economic paradigm of endless accumulation, and what role did the Reformation play? Are Protestants responsible for global capitalism?
Jonathan and Jacob dive into the history to discover how we got here and some implications for Christians today.
