Item description for Luck: A Secular Faith by Wayne E. Oates...
Overview (PUBWestminster/John Knox)With the rapid increase in casinos and state lotteries, gambling is taking a heavy toll on American life. Oates examines the psychological, sociological, and theological dimensions of the dilemma. 111 pages, softcover.
In this book, Wayne Oates defines luck as a secular faith, examining the ways in which the idea of our experiences being based on luck dominates much of our thinking about how and why our lives develop as they do. According to Oates, this secular "faith in luck" is unhealthy and should be countered with faith in God.
