Beyond Greed

Beyond Greed

$16.99

Paperback

'Greed is not the most fashionable concept these days. It ranks with 'guilt' and 'sin' as words that many modern people have virtually stopped using. According to Brian Rosner, greed is also a massive blind spot for Christians, which is surprising given how much the Bible has to say about it. He writes:

"The most disturbing thing about he fact that greed is idolatry is that hardly anybody owns up to being a worshipper. Imagine the response of disbelief in the local church if it were revealed that the vast majority of its members were secretly worshipping other gods. Yet if our analysis of the religion of money is right, the unthinkable may not be so far from the truth."

BEYOND GREED helps open our eyes to the problems of unconscious idolatry, and then proposes a liberating lifestyle that trades in greed and materialism for something of far greater worth and satisfaction.
