This booklet contains six bible studies for Christians and churches on faith and economics. The booklet can be used by discussion groups or individuals.
The six studies cover:
- 1) ‘Good news for the poor’: Why debts should sometimes not be paid
- 2) ‘Debt jubilees’: What causes positive changes to happen
- 3) ‘Hoarding wealth’: How inequality causes financial crises
- 4) ‘Tax injustice’: How rich people are made poor
- 5) ‘Breaking the mould’: Gender inequality
- 6) ‘Forgive us our debts’ Who really owes who?

Debt Justice is an organisation of all faiths and none, but takes inspiration from the ancient and biblical concept of jubilee, a time when debts were cancelled, slaves set free, land was redistributed and fields left fallow.
