About the Book

For those who think there is no connection between economics and the Bible, this book says, “Not so fast.”

William B. McKee, a husband, father, grandfather, and Christian scholar, not only disagrees with this position—he explains how the false view developed.

He also shares economic models that demonstrate how the Bible has supported the creation of wealth, highlighting how money has been a subject of teaching by church leaders from the beginning.

Along the way, McKee reveals his personal story of how he turned the corporate pyramid he had lived by for so many years upside down, moving from success to significance to support people instead of having people support him. From there, it was on to seminary school.

Throughout this treatise, McKee introduces economic paradigms to help explain why God has always required surplus (wealth) for his plan. Further, he explains how surplus was initiated by God, highlighting scriptural teachings on the creation of surplus and the concomitant spiritual risks to those that have the special gift of productivity.

Join the author as he explores how creating or influencing surplus can help advance God’s kingdom with biblical insights, lessons, and cautions on wealth-building and its distribution in The Economics of God’s Plan.
