Review:

"God and Money" is unique because it does not simply make ethical recommendations; it seeks to analyze dynamics at work in the economy and to identify directions in which this system is going, while dealing with an issue that has not been addressed directly as yet: namely the issue of religion and the currency system.--Rieger, Joerg

"God and Money" is a unique theological exploration of the significance of money. Its relational ethic challenges the imperial domination of the euro and the dollar in the economies of the developing world, especially Africa, and calls for the creation of a single global currency. It is a provocative and creative work.--David Hollenbach

This extraordinary book should be read by all who are concerned with the relation of ethics, economics, and business because it bridges the great chasm that has separated those disciplines for far too long. The author helps his readers see money not as a material thing alone but as a social relation. This is an altogether new perspective, not only describing the moral dimension of money itself but inspiring readers to discern the ethical issues implicit in the global monetary system. The argument in this book is captivating as it reveals how theology and ethics are deeply embedded in the nature of money itself. In fact, the author claims that the logic implicit in present day global monetary practices tends to coincide with the values of the Trinity. Most importantly, he advocates a single global currency as a necessary condition for greater equity between the poorer and richer nations of the world.--Peter J. Paris, Princeton Theological Seminary
