About:

You know people around the world are struggling. A homeless man holds a sign that reads, "Anything helps." A poor child lives in a slum swarming with flies. A refugee mother is on the brink of starvation. You ask yourself, "But what can I do about such big problems?"


You’re looking for long-term solutions. John D. Barry shares incredible, and often shocking, stories about working among the impoverished and unchurched in the U.S. and abroad. And since Barry is a Bible scholar, Jesus’ Economy is also deeply rooted in the Scriptures. It is a personal, sometimes funny, often heartbreaking account that presents a revolutionary pattern for lasting change.


Jesus' Economy is based on self-sacrifice. His currency is love. It’s called Jesus’ Economy because it’s about creating a spiritual and physical economy for those who need it most. Here is a thoroughly biblical and compassionate pattern for addressing issues of poverty and offering the hope of the gospel. Jesus’ Economy:


  • Shows how you as an individual can best encourage renewal in your community.

  • Demonstrates how your church community or any group can alleviate poverty.

  • Presents a unified plan for creating jobs, spreading the gospel, and meeting basic needs.

  • Focuses on community development and sustainability—lasting change, globally and locally.


Jesus’ Economy is a call to address our own spiritual poverty—as people who can too easily become distant from Christ—and it is a call to address the physical poverty all around us in a smart and sustainable way. Jesus’ teachings show that with simple, everyday choices, you can make the world a better place and create enduring change. Here’s how to live Jesus’ economy—a currency of love.
