How Much is Enough? Hungering For God in an Affluent

A Social Movements, Faith, Christian book. Quite challenging.

In a world filled with both prosperity and poverty, how can Christians handle their finances in a way that honors God? In How Much Is Enough?, Arthur Simon takes an uncompromising look at America's wealth, reflecting what dominates the hearts and motivations of its people. He diagnoses Western civilization as sick with "affluenza," or runaway materialism, and shows readers how to reject the disease and set new priorities. Churches, social ministry groups, and thoughtful readers will be enlightened by Simon's grasp of Western affluence against the backdrop of a world where 800 million people are chronically starving. Readers will gain a clearer understanding of how money becomes an object of worship when passion for material things is stronger than compassion for the poor. Simon's life-changing book also reveals how affluenza takes control of people's lives and goals. Without discounting prosperity as a blessing, How Much Is Enough? proposes new pathways to living as disciples of Jesus. It suggests a myriad of solutions for taming materialism and sheds light on the profound reality that possessions may capture our hearts, but they are unable to nourish our souls.

More About How Much is Enough? Hungering For God in an Affluent

i feel guilty giving this book 2 stars because it is about such an important topic, but i didn't really enjoy it much. i also feel guilty saying that the reason i didn't like it was that the author was a bit too preachy and never really delved into things -- he just brushed over vague contexts. why does that make me feel guilty? because... Quite challenging. It's a good book. As someone I know said about another book this weekend: "It's nothing you don't already know". That doesn't mean that it isn't worth reading. Sometimes viewing the same messages from different viewpoints is very instructive.
