Críticas:

"For God and Profit "is a formidable book, packed with interesting and regularly unacknowledged and unknown historical information, especially about the contribution of Christian thinking to the development of banking, the rise of the markets and Western prosperity. It is also closely argued with Christian and natural law categories of right and wrong being used to evaluate the economies and financial systems of today and yesterday." Cardinal George Pell, Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy, Vatican City" Christians have long been suspicious of the worlds of finance and capital. But Samuel Gregg has produced just the book we need. It is ecumenical, patient in explaining concepts and practices that Christians of all confessions should know, characterized by logic and clear moral analysis, and attentive to the contributions made by Christians throughout history to the development of modern finance systems. At a time when finance not only seems bereft of a moral compass but also to be lurching from crisis to crisis, this is a book sorely needed by Christians today." Michael Novak, author, The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism"" Many relationships between people today are based on finance and the exchange of financial value. Often the potential of these relationships and institutions are lost and damaged through harmful action and misguided thought. Both are challenged by Samuel Gregg in this timely, thoughtful and accessible book. He seeks not only to analyse and critique but to exhort, and his appeal is to reason and the Judeo-Christian tradition. His breadth of scholarship and understanding of contemporary finance make this book a relevant and insightful resource for thinkers and practitioners alike. Peter S. Heslam, Transforming Business, University of Cambridge" "Many relationships between people today are based on finance and the exchange of financial value.

Heslam, Transforming Business, University of Cambridge "Christians have been indoctrinated with a distrust of money and its effects on society. This translates into the belief that money is inherently evil. Gregg is well-prepared and in one of the finest books ever written on the subject, shows how faith and finance are not incompatible" --John E. Roper, US Review of Books "In his typically erudite fashion, Samuel Gregg has successfully synthesized an understanding of two topics which are, regretfully, too often seen as being in opposition to one another: God and finance. Grounding his analysis in a narrative which is equal parts modern economics and morality, he leaves the reader thankful for new and at times surprising insights." --Frank J. Hanna III, entrepreneur, merchant banker, author, What Your Money Means "Christians have long been suspicious of the worlds of finance and capital.

Reseña del editor:

From Christianity's very beginning, it has had a difficult relationship with the world of money. Through developing sophisticated understandings of the nature and wealth-creating capacity of capital, Christian theologians, philosophers, and financiers exerted considerable influence upon the emergence and development of the international financial systems that helped unleash a revolution in the way the world thinks about and uses capital. In For God and Profit, Samuel Gregg underscores the different ways in which Christians have helped to develop the financial and banking systems that have helped millions escape poverty for hundreds of years. But he also provides a critical lens through which to assess the workings-and failures-of modern finance and banking. Far from being doomed to producing economic instability and periodic financial crises, Gregg illustrates that how Christian faith and reason can shape financial practices and banking institutions in ways that restore integrity to our troubled financial systems.

Descripción The Crossroad Publishing Company. Hardcover. Condición: New. 300 pages. The work of those involved in finance has always been immersed in a fog of moral ambiguity. One reason for the confusion is a lack of concrete knowledge of what bankers really do and why. The need to gain such knowledge before rendering moral judgment has been underscored by some of modern Christianitys finest minds. Though many of us live in religiously pluralist societies in which it cant be assumed that everyone understands Christianitys core beliefs, many people nonetheless want to know what Christians think. Where faithful Christians differ from most secular approaches to finance is that Christians cannot accept appeals to expediency or utility-maximization as the decisive criteria for making moral decisions. Finance is unquestionably a sphere of life in which people are subject to particular temptationsjust as politics and ordained ministry are callings with their own potential pitfalls that lure people towards choosing sin. But while the Christian moral life is certainly concerned with not doing evil, finance is far from being an intrinsically problematic activity. For God and Profit offers a clear, accessible argument for all involved and interested in matters of finance and ethics considerations regarding finance. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Nº de ref. del artículo: 9780824521882
