The history of gambling in America and observes its present-day impact Feb 9, 2006
Now in a newly revised and updated edition, Gambling: Don't Bet On It is Cornerstone University President Rex Rogers' response to the shifts in modern American culture that celebrate legalized gambling more than ever. Gambling: Don't Bet On It examines the history of gambling in America and observes its present-day impact, including the money it siphons from individuals and households, moral and economic arguments against it, "harmless" forms of gambling such as the office pool, gambling demographics, negative impacts it has on modern culture, and more. Though the religious dimension of gambling as a sin is examined, Gambling: Don't Bet On It is not primarily a Christian book, but rather a social issues book sounding a crucial wake-up call to gambling's harmful effects. Extensively researched and persuasively argued in terms accessible to lay readers, Gambling: Don't Bet On It makes a singularly powerful and compelling argument.
