Reflections for Christians for dealing with money in a consumer-driven world
In this much-needed book Douglas Hicks looks at how Christian faith applies to the practices of economic life-spending, saving, giving especially as an alternative to a life of unbridled consumerism. This book offers reflections for people of faith and anyone who wants to connect their Monday through Saturday lives with their faith and live a more integrated way. It takes a look at how to realistically apply Christian principles in these especially perilous economic times.
The book is filled with the author's level-headed, thoughtful reflections on Christian practices of getting and spending.
From the Back Cover:
In this timely resource, author Douglas A. Hicks offers a faith-based account of the global economy and our place in it. Money Enough is filled with insight and wise advice that walks the line between rejecting the marketplace and accepting its excesses. Using well-chosen illustrative examples, the book shows how to develop practices that help us survive in hard times and reach out to others.
Praise for Money Enough
"If your eyes glaze over when you see the word 'economics,' or if your eyelids droop when you hear the word 'theology,' don't fear. Doug Hicks integrates economics and theology with such clarity and accessibility that you'll see both in a new light: as vital resources to help us care for our global household with love and wisdom." —Brian McLaren, author, A New Kind of Christian and A Generous Orthodoxy (brianmclaren.net)
"In a world where most discussions of money are neither practical nor wise, Doug Hicks offers here a large dose of Christian practical wisdom. His wonderful illustrations and incisive analysis deserve a wide readership, especially in churches where we have pretended that how we deal with money is irrelevant to discipleship." — L. Gregory Jones, dean of the Divinity School and professor of theology, Duke University
"How should people of faith live in a world that extols consumption, erases work/life boundaries, and worships the market? Religious institutions have largely provided two unsatisfying alternatives: embrace some sort of prosperity gospel or retreat into an ascetic lifestyle. In this fantastically insightful and important book, Doug Hicks charts another way. It is the ideal guide for our times." —Amy Sullivan, senior editor, TIME magazine, and author, The Party Faithful
