This book, masquarading as a progressive analysis and critique of traditional theological dictum on the errors in conceptualizing the labor movement surely is debating the so called 'new Protestant' labor ethic. In this sense, the book may be helpful for seminarians but not for those in the trenches who are seeking a new path to a liberation of the working class. For it is only through workers themselves that true transformation can take place. Workers seek justice but phantoms of the world of religion only confuse and obfuscate the oppression on the job and the possibility for radical chage.
