God & Money confronts the current dominant right wing Republican / evangelical Christian view that unfettered, market-driven capitalism and Christian faith and values are compatible. Drawing on such ethical luminaries as Reinhold Niebuhr, G.K. Chesterton, Peter Berger, and John Paul II, author Charles McDaniel shows that to reverse the current decline in public morality, capitalism must be balanced by enduring religious and moral values.
Charles McDaniel, a successful business entrepreneur, now focuses on the interplay of economics, religion, and values. He is visiting professor of Church-State Relations at Baylor University. He lives in Waco, Texas.
