Product Description

How should Christians live in a material world? Should personal guilt accompany financial success? Is wealth incompatible with true Christianity? In this book John R. Schneider ropens the debate over the proper Christian attitude toward money, arguing, ultimately, that Scripture does indeed provide support for the responsible possession of wealth. This is a provocative book of Christian theology, written to help people seeking God in a culture that has grown from modern capitalism. By comparing classic Christian teaching on wealth with the realities of our modern economic world, Schneider challenges the common presumption that material affluence is inherently bad. Careful interpretation of Scripture narratives--creation, exodus, exile, and more--also shows that abundance is the condition that God envisions for all human beings and that faithful persons of wealth are part of this plan.
