Publisher's Description

We pay a price for gambling.


You probably would not find the average Christian risking large sums at roulette or blackjack in Las Vegas. But you might see him or her buying a lottery ticket. Is the lottery considered gambling? How might state-run lotteries influence our thinking in ways we don t even realize? This study will seek to answer these questions.
