"Dr Poole's work is a magnificent contribution to the church. Written by a gifted theologian and practitioner, this book is for all those wishing to gain both a richer theological understanding of capitalism and modern consumerism, and practical insights on how we can simplify our lives. This is vital work, not only for our own spiritual benefit, but also for the good of society and for the wellbeing of our planet."
"This is a wonderful book. It is very accessible, theologically sophisticated, and rooted in a deep knowledge of commerce, management and consumerism, in which Eve Poole is an expert. I know of no better book for guiding Christians in the day to day world of consumerism. Inspiring, compelling and very easy to read, it deserves a wide readership."
"Knowledgeable and accessible, as adept at exploring economics as at delineating theological method, Buying God offers a steady hand through the demands of global capitalism and the seductions of human desire. Eve Poole offers an example of how theology is always politics, and always devotional - and, at its best, both at the same time."
'This learned and thought provoking book might be the only you you ever need on the subject. It manages to combine a whistle stop tour through theology's big dogs with a helpful primer on capitalism and some deeply practical questions to provoke action. It's rare that a book this readable and amusing covers so much intellectual ground.'
'This book is thought provoking, giving the reader the opportunity to reflect seriously from a theological perspective about their own consumerism and the wider implications of consumerism within the global economy.'
