Product Description

Few would doubt the central role of money today. Money is the hub around which much of the modern world turns, particularly in those places impacted by capitalism. Given that Scripture frequently addresses the use and abuse of money, and notable figures in church tradition have also done so, it's clear that the role of money in contemporary society is a subject that deserves serious Christian reflection. Enter Craig Gay. In this new book Gay incisively discusses the huge impact of money on personal and social life. Considering the insights of a number of classical and contemporary social theorists, Gay shows the duplicity of a monetary ethos: capitalism is without question the most productive economic system ever devised, yet the market system also fosters a subtle nihilism that tends to empty the world of substance and meaning. Gay's analysis encourages readers to rediscover meanings and values that transcend "cash values"--higher values that can free us from the market economy's grip on our culture.

Publisher's Description

Foreword by Trevor Cairney MONEY - the world today revolves around it. Particularly in capitalist societies, money plays a central role. Given money's pride of place in modern life and given how often the Bible addresses money's use and abuse, the subject of money clearly deserves serious Christian reflection. Craig Gay offers just that in this short, incisive, balanced book. Considering the insights of several classical and contemporary social theorists, Gay shows the duplicity of a monetary ethos: capitalism is without question the most productive economic system ever devised, yet the market system also fosters a subtle nihilism that tends to empty the world of substance and meaning. Gay's study encourages readers to rediscover meanings and values that transcend "cash values" - higher values that can free us from the market economy's grip on our culture.
