Item description for A Voice Full of Money: The Parable of "The Great Gatsby": A Warning Against Moral Drift by Derick Bingham...
Overview He was the star and spokesman for the decade he called the "Jazz Age," the 1920's, the "greatest and gaudiest spree in history" which saw a whole race going hedonistic, deciding on pleasure." It all crashed and with it came a severe poisoning of "The American Dream." His name is F. Scott Fitzgerald and he transformed the rites and passages of his era into a hauntingly powerful literary career. The most powerful expression of Fitzgerald's mood and feelings about the times he lived through is found in his masterpiece "The Great Gatsby." In the character of Jay Gatsby, the mysterious tycoon of Long Island, Fitzgerald explored the whole question of the corruption of values and the decline of spiritual life. He also explored the power of Romanticism. It is a thoughtful Bill Gates who has a quotation from the last chapter of the novel above his portico. Fitzgerald's writing is looked on today by millions as prophetic. This book is a look at what he so masterfully exposed and its aim is to apply the ageless Scriptures to the emptiness of hedonism and show how we can be led to make the right choices, to travel on the right road and to know a sure and steadfast hope in the midst of a Western civilization that is often selling it's very soul for the transient.
