Lying Fallow in a Restless World: Using the Bible to Explain the Implications of Rest in Economics
Economic courses pay little attention to the economic implications of insufficient rest. This paper identifies several biblical references to the role of rest with economic implications, examining what the Bible says about the importance of rest for creation and contrasting this with the economic consequences of inad- equate rest. It also provides some specific areas of economics courses where incorporating these connections between biblical guidance on rest and actual examples could be meaningful to students.
