Item description for God & Money: The Moral Challenge of Capitalism by Charles McDaniel...
Overview Draws on the examples of G. K. Chesterton, Peter Berger, and John Paul II to argue that capitalism and Christian values are incompatible, contending that the current decline in public morality must be countered by enduring religious values.
Publishers Description God & Money confronts the current dominant right wing Republican / evangelical Christian view that unfettered, market-driven capitalism and Christian faith and values are compatible. Drawing on such ethical luminaries as Reinhold Niebuhr, G.K. Chesterton, Peter Berger, and John Paul II, author Charles McDaniel shows that to reverse the current decline in public morality, capitalism must be balanced by enduring religious and moral values. Challenging the captivity of Christian culture by free market, global capitalism, McDaniel joins other Christian ethical visionaries in advocating a "redemptive economy," one that champions individual human dignity, true community, and the moral regeneration of cultural traditions in vital dialectic with the inevitable market capitalism of the contemporary world.
