Item description for Virtue and Affluence: The Challenge of Wealth by John Haughey...
Beginning in 1991, Jesuit priest and lecturer John Haughey was asked to conduct a series of weekend workshops for Christian people who had considerable wealth ? mostly multimillionaires. He was challenged to help them reflect on their responsibilities or ?call? with respect to their wealth, leading them as a group of peers to shed light on their own personal reflections and insights. Members of the middle class are intrigued by the wealthy but they also find that they are bedeviled by many of the same questions that bother those addressed in this challenging and incisive book.
