Bruce Webb: Reflections on Charity and Truth

“As our economic troubles deepen, we are inclined to look inward, focusing exclusively on the damaging economic and psychological effects of the loss of a job or a home—and this is understandable.

Christians must be ever mindful of Jesus’ call to ‘serve the least of these.’” Read more of this essay by Bruce Webb, professor of economics at Gordon, in Comment Online, the journal of CARDUS, a think tank.
