Few would doubt the central role of money today. It is the hub around which much of the modern world turns, particularly in those places impacted by capitalism. Add to this the fact that the use and abuse of money has frequently been addressed by Scripture and by notable figures in church tradition and, clearly, money is an aspect of contemporary society deserving of serious Christian reflection.^In this new volume by Craig Gay considers with wisdom and aplomb the impact of money in 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. Money also lurks behind many of the perplexing social and cultural problems so often associated with capitalist development. Gaybs analysis encourages readers to rediscover meanings and values that transcend bcash valuesb and that, therefore, might in turn serve to discipline the market economybs hold on the modern mind.

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.

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.
