African American scholar Anthony Bradley understands the growing interest in the intersections of theology and economics emerging in light of Christianity's commitment to loving the poor. Local and global disparities in human flourishing call for prudential judgments that wed good intentions with sound economic principles. In his book, Black and Tired, he addresses the issues of race, politics, contemporary culture, globalization, and education by wedding moral theology and economics. Dr. Bradley also explicitly applies Christian moral teachings to today's global concerns.
Dr. Thomas Sowell, black and eighty years old, displays no signs of tiredness in writing columns – but when he does, Anthony Bradley shows in Black and Tired why he should be Sowell's successor. Dr. Bradley trumps liberal opponents with facts and wit, and does so within a Christian worldview that allows him to go deeper than conventional economics allows.
