Let us assume that for some reason the leadership of the world decided that the principle by which they operate the existing world order, nation by nation, no longer functions. The leaders have lost faith in the system. The public has lost faith in the system. Everyone has lost […]

In the previous issue of Biblical Economics Today, I discussed a remarkable opportunity that the collapsing economies of the Iron Curtain countries presented to evangelicals.
