I Love Tim Keller Despite the Fact That He Is Terribly Wrong On Occasion

I was going to write a post critiquing Tim Keller's political/economic views, but, after reading this, I don't think I need to. 

Tim Keller is a great preacher who has written some helpful books, but I wish he'd keep all the Marxist nonsense to himself. I guess it's not reasonable to expect a pastor to understand economics when most mainstream economists are clueless (I'm looking at you, Paul Krugman).

Here are two books that I wish Tim Keller (and other church leaders) would read:
  • Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt
  • The Law by Frederick Bastiat
These two short books provide an answer to all the statist/socialist nonsense that seems to be endemic among the Evangelical power elite. Hazlitt would help Keller and the other Social Justice warriors understand that the policies they advocate are ineffective. Bastiat would help them realize that those same policies are also immoral (regardless of their effectiveness or lack thereof).
