A Christian response to the Global Financial Crisis

The Global Financial Crisis (GFC) has been termed a one in one hundred year event, whose scale and scope is difficult to grasp. It is global, it is financial, and is a crisis of enormous proportions, that affects individuals, families, businesses, banks, institutions, governments and nations. This problem is so big that Christians need to gain a healthy perspective on the challenges and opportunities in 2009 and beyond. It cannot be ignored, and the problem is not going to go away anytime soon.

This blog is an attempt to understand the Global Financial Crisis from a Christian perspective, and to provide some guidelines for practical action. In this blog I examine the magnitude of the crisis, the immediate and deeper causes, the effects of the crisis, and some possible responses by Christians and local churches.
