Item description for Money and Faith: The Search for Enough by Michael Schut...

Talking about money in a personal way remains more of a taboo than sex or politics. To Schut, this seems odd within a Christian context since Jesus addressed topics of money, poverty, and wealth more than probably any other concern.

Publishers Description

Talking about money in a personal way remains more of a taboo than sex or politics. This seems odd within a Christian context, since Jesus addressed topics of money, poverty, and wealth more than any other concerns. For many, money becomes an idol; we see it in our own culture as we pursue economic growth no matter the cost to the overall well-being of God s creation. When that happens, enough is always more than we have right now, and scarcity becomes the lens through which we see the world.

On a personal level, this book opens up issues of scarcity and abundance, idolatry and freedom; on a societal level, it invites exploration of greater equity and sustainability. On both levels, it empowers individuals and groups to apply their faith s values in practical ways while taking pastoral and prophetic stances. The author suggests we need to experience the nurturing companionship of a wise, compassionate pastor or spiritual guide in our relationship to money, while also needing to experience the power, strength, anger, and call to repentance of an Old Testament prophet.

People want to connect their values with everyday concerns, while discovering ways to make a positive difference. This book helps them do both.

Includes a comprehensive study guide within the book for groups and individuals.

Contributors include: Henri Nouwen, Dave Barry, Walter Brueggemann, David Boyle, Lynne Twist, Lewis Hyde, William Stringfellow, John Haughey, Ched Myers, Bill McKibben, Sallie McFague, William Greider, Leonardo Boff, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, Maria Harris, Rich Lang, Wayne Muller, Sharon Parks, Rodney Clapp, Ted Nace, Lester Brown, Pete Barnes, Andy Loving, Edgar Cahn, Sarah Tarver-Wahlquist, Susan Wilkes, Jim Klobuchar"

Reviews - What do customers think about Money and Faith: The Search for Enough?

Great Resource!  Oct 15, 2009
This book is a great compilation of important essays and thoughts about our perceptions of and issues with money in today's society. Everyone needs to read this book. Wise and helpful. Dave Barry was well-chosen and hilarious; Lynne Twist, on Scarcity, was invaluable, as was Ched Myers' perspective on the Rich Man and the Kingdom of God.
