Dylan's book

Picture of book cover to come ...

So ... Dylan wrote a book. Isn't the cover beautiful? But I'll tell you something ... if it is possible to know less than nothing about a subject, that would be ME and economics. AND, I will say that I have equal (less than zero) interest in the subject--well, usually, that is. But Dylan wrote this book!! And Dylan is an EXCELLENT writer. I am almost finished reading it and I have learned a lot. Dylan proposed writing this book to his employers at Acton Institute. They have published the book and it was featured at their most recent conference. So proud of him.

Back of book cover says:

"Complemented by a style that makes complex theological, political, and economic ideas easily comprehensive, Pahman's careful explanation of the relationship between Christian anthropology and concerns for freedom, justice, development, and human flourishing will be accessible to people of varying religious and educational backgrounds." -- Samuel Gregg, from the Foreward


"Creative, quirky, and always winsome, Dylan Pahman answers these and other questions as he builds a systematic case for a positive relationship between a biblical understanding of the human person and the economic flourishing that freedom enables. His tour of scripture, philosophy, and economics mirror the curriculum of the Acton Institute's highly successful conferences. Free-market advocates will disc over a sound theological groundwork and people of faith will learn how to speak 'Economish' as they follow Pahman through this crash course in the principles of a free and virtuous society." 

As described on Amazon ...

Dylan Pahman is a research fellow at the Acton Institute, where he serves as managing editor of the Journal of Markets & Morality. He earned his MTS in Historical Theology from Calvin Theological Seminary.

In addition to his work as an editor, Dylan has authored several peer-reviewed articles, conference papers, essays, and one book: Foundations of a Free & Virtuous Society (Acton Institute, 2017). He has also lectured on a wide variety of topics, including Orthodox Christian social thought, the history of Christian monastic enterprise, the Reformed statesman and theologian Abraham Kuyper, and academic publishing, among others.
