Summary "Making a case for a denationalized global currency as an alternative to the dollar, euro, and yen as the world vehicular and reserve currencies, Cod and Money explores the significance and theological-ethical implications of money as a social relation in light of the dynamic relations of the triune God. Nimi Wariboko deftly analyzes the dynamics at work in the global monetary system and argues that the monarchical-currency structure of the dollar, euro, and yen may be moving toward a trinitarian structure of a democratic world currency."--BOOK JACKET.
