God’s Investment and Ours: Towards a Theology of Investment – Part Two
In the first instalment of this four-part series of articles, Peter Heslam introduced the idea of investment. He noted ways in which the Bible depicts God as an investor. And he highlighted the apparent ‘recklessness’ of some of the key biblical models of investment. Here he focuses on the portion of scripture that is most directly to do with investment: the Parable of the Talents. He suggests that, even if the parable is taken to be mainly about money, it is thereby also about virtue.
