Product description

Review

"Consuming Faith" has the great merit to offer paths towards a realistic spirituality for our consumer society far from naivete, moralizing, or demonizing. Tom Beaudoin's call for a responsible attitude in buying and consuming is rooted in his deep concern for the inalienable dignity of all human beings which transcends all economic categories. Although Beaudoin calls for a "spiritual indifference to numbers," I wish his new book a large sales success!--Professor Hans Kung

"Consuming Faith" is a provocative look into the role that definitive faith can and should play in the realm of finances and consumerism.--Eric Hurtgen "Relevant Magazine "

Economic spirituality? Yes, of course. And now with Consuming Faith, we have an examination of conscience about what we wear, eat and watch. You'll never look at a logo in quite the same way again.--Paul Wilkes, Author of In Due Season: A Catholic Life, and The Seven Secrets of Successful Catholics

Over the past ten years, writers of faith have reengaged the ancient question of God and Mammon, what is owed God and what is owed to Rome. From Harvey Cox and Ron Sider, to Robert Wuthnow and Jim Wallis, the pressing questions are not only about the just distribution of income and wealth, but the impact of pervasive consumerism on human identity and relations. Tom Beaudoin has advanced that debate with a profound yet accessible reflection on our "branded" culture and the alternatives available to it. Consuming Faith invites us to live life anew, freed of the golden chains which hold so many prisoners. This is a timely, compelling book that deserves a wide audience and debate.--Richard Parker, Harvard Kennedy School

This book must be read by those who work with anyone 18 to 38 years old, anyone who has been raised in a branded culture like ours.--Father Mark G. Boyer "The Priest - Our Sunday Visitor "

Beaudoin seems to be finding his own true voice in some of these pages.--D. Seiple "Journal of the American Academy of Religion "

Consuming Faith is a provocative look into the role that definitive faith can and should play in the realm of finances and consumerism.--Eric Hurtgen "Relevant Magazine "

Consuming Faith has the great merit to offer paths towards a realistic spirituality for our consumer society--far from naiveté, moralizing, or demonizing. Tom Beaudoin's call for a responsible attitude in buying and consuming is rooted in his deep concern for the inalienable dignity of all human beings which transcends all economic categories. Although Beaudoin calls for a "spiritual indifference to numbers," I wish his new book a large sales success!--Professor Hans Küng, President, Global Ethic Foundation

Synopsis

Tom Beaudoin's "Consuming Faith" presents key questions about attempting to put our spirituality into practice by integrating who we are with what we buy. Where do these products come from? Who made them and in what conditions do they work? How does what I buy affect others? What does my faith have to do with what I buy? When is enough, enough? Today, it is more important than ever to pay attention to our economic spirituality.
