Overview

Does capitalism promote greed? Can a person follow Jesus's call to love others and also support capitalism? Was our recent economic crisis caused by flaws inherent to our free market system? Jay Richards presents a new approach to capitalism, revealing how it's fully consistent with Jesus's teachings and the Christian tradition, while also showing why this system is our best bet for renewed economic vigor.

The church is bombarded with two competing messages about money and capitalism:

  • wealth is bad and causes much of the world's suffering
  • wealth is good and God wants you to prosper and be rich

Richards exposes these myths, and other common misconceptions about capitalism, and reveals the surprising ways that capitalism is, in fact, the best system to respond to the biblical mandates of alleviating poverty and protecting the environment. Money, Greed, and God equips readers to take practical steps in their own lives to conduct business, worship God, and serve others without falling into the "prosperity gospel" trap.

Editorial Reviews

Michael Novak
“Jay Richards understands the objections to capitalism, and here explains why they do not convince him. The empirical findings revealed in Money, Greed, and God run against those objections.”
Washington Times
“Money, Greed, and God is both thoughtful and important.”
George Gilder
“In Money, Greed, and God, Jay Richards has written the definitive case for capitalism, a crisply written and incisive discourse on wealth and poverty, money and morality for the 21st Century.”
Rev. Robert A. Sirico
In Money, Greed, and God, Jay Richards shows us . . . a capitalism grounded in the truth about human beings as free, morally responsible, co-creators charged with dominion and stewardship of the earth by the loving God to whom we are all ultimately accountable.

    Brought me clarity and understanding as a Philanthropic Christian

    The greatest burdens of being wealthy and Christian are the constant misnomers and misunderstandings of having money and the responsibilities of Stewarding money. There are millions of wealthy people accomplished in making money with emptiness in their lives that are misled to think money is their problem. Jay brings to light commonly taught economically principles such as "the unseen hand" as being secular ways of teaching what are really God's Principals in action. Eventually you can see Capitalism in it's genuine form as the best system on Earth to foster these Biblical principals. This book will bring enlightenment and the encouragement to Steward wealth and bring purpose and truth to anyone blessed with money or on the path to making it.
