    Kathryn Tanner constructs a theological economic system based on the tenets of grace. Her system, which attempts to address Christianity’s concern for fundamental economic rights, is ultimately flawed. I establish how her theological economic system is built on faulty assumptions, while determining whether the key benefits that she identifies as out- comes can be achieved in the current competitive market system.
