A smart new pair of shoes. A bright, efficient new kitchen. And (maybe, just maybe) a purringly sleek new car. That would be enough. Almost. For a while. But that little bit more will never be enough. And that ‘little’ sin called greed is whitewashed & forgotten, as we forgo true, lasting riches & succumb to our own particular brand of economic slavery. Brian Rosner shows how greed is idolatry & separates us from God & from each other. He urges us to learn contentment, share what we have, & turn our insatiable appetites to the pursuit of God. ‘Greed cripples millions in a consumer society, & Brian Rosner gently & carefully exposes its insanity.’- Elaine Storkey, President, Tearfund. ‘This book is a timely challenge to our materialistic lifestyle. Greed is an insidious virus against which we need frequent warnings. Brian Rosner is to be thanked for undertaking such a task.’ Revd Phillip Jensen, St Matthias Church, Sydney. Brian Rosner lectures in New Testament at Aberdeen University. He is co-editor of the forthcoming NEW DICTIONARY OF BIBLICAL THEOLOGY (IVP), but this book shows his skill as a popular writer. He and his wife Leanne have 3 small treasures, Elizabeth, Emily & William.
