Evangelicals Hold Pessimistic Views of the Economy

Date: September 12, 2011

Margaret Benefiel, writing on Sojourners's God's Politics blog, said there are "no easy answers" for the economy.

"We will need to experiment. We will need to hear opposing perspectives, listening for the wisdom in other points of view," Benefiel said. "We will need to work together across party lines for the good of all, rejecting entrenched, knee-jerk responses. We will need to find a new way forward."
