In this study, participants will be encouraged to examine some pertinent New Testament passages about taxation, explore selected issues regarding what can or should be taxed, and discuss how tax revenue should be used. The issue of taxation is inescapably fraught with troubling ethical, social, and political conflict. How are we to act when moral and civic values seem to contradict each other? There is no single biblical teaching or theological precept that offers clear answers, but this session will surely help clarify the issues.

Brent Waters is the Jerre and Mary Joy Stead Professor of Christian Social Ethics and director of the Jerre L. and Mary Joy Stead Center for Ethics and Values at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. He is the author of many books, including Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture: From Posthuman Back to Human; The Family in Christian Social and Political Thought; and From Human to Posthuman: Christian Theology and Technology in a Postmodern World. He has also written numerous articles and lectured extensively on the relationship among theology, ethics, and technology.
