Wayne Grudem2014 - Wayne Grudem

Wayne Grudem is Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies at Phoenix Seminary in Phoenix, Arizona. He received a B.A. from Harvard University, an M.Div. and a D.D. from Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia, and a Ph.D. (in New Testament) from the University of Cambridge, England. He has published over twenty books, including Systematic Theology and Business for the Glory of God. He was also the General Editor for the ESV Study Bible.

Dr. Grudem will be speaking on the topic of his latest book, The Poverty of Nations: A Sustainable Solution. Poverty of the Nations makes a robust proposal for fighting poverty on a national level. The solution lies in a comprehensive development plan that integrates the principles of a free market system with the Bible’s teachings on social ethics. Speaking to the importance of personal freedom, the rule of law, private property, moral virtue, and education, this book offers a clear path for promoting economic prosperity and safeguarding a country’s long-term stability—a sustainable solution for a world looking for the way forward.

Moy stresses importance of integrity in the workplace

Christians are called to be change agents and can bring about change through the moral and ethical decisions they make, Edmund Moy said March 29 at Union University.

“I believe that all Christians without exception are called to full-time Christian ministry,” Moy said. “Some of that full-time Christian ministry is going to be a pastor, who equips their congregation to go out and do full-time Christian ministry. But for many of us, it’s going to be in our workplace.”

Moy, former director of the U.S. Mint and aide to President George W. Bush, was the guest speaker for Union’s Business Through the Eyes of Faith luncheon. Sponsored by the McAfee School of Business Administration, the event is designed to encourage and equip members of the West Tennessee business community to integrate their Christian faith into their workplaces.
