In today’s post at Common Sense Concept I provide a list of book recommendations for those who are doing any last-minute Christmas shopping or list-building. As far as the focus of the list, I offer five titles that proved influential in shaping my views on faith and free enterprise.
The five books are as follows:
- A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles by Thomas Sowell
- The Virtue of Selfishness by Ayn Rand and Nathaniel Branden
- Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism by Arthur Brooks
- From Poverty to Prosperity: Intangible Assets, Hidden Liabilities, and the Lasting Triumph over Scarcity by Nick Schulz and Arnold Kling
- Free to Choose: A Personal Statement by Milton and Rose Friedman
As I note in the post, these titles are not (necessarily) religious: “Rather, [they] were extraordinarily valuable in steering my raw, Bible-based upbringing in the right direction when it came to economics.”
To find out why I think these titles are important for Christians, read the full post.
