An Idol Unmasked: A Faith Perspective on Money
Our societyís attitude to money, says Bishop Peter Selby, has become reminiscent of the ancient religions that worshipped idols. ĎIt Ė money, mammon Ė has encouraged us to believe that a sophisticated game of second guessing is the only sensible response to its fearful power, and that having more and more of it is the only wise ambition and the only security against a life of penury and misery. Money doesnít just talk, it rules.í Peter Selby is one of the few theologians reflecting on the role of money in our personal and public lives, and his new book exploring the subject, An Idol Unmasked: A Faith Perspective on Money was published in 2014. In this talk he will reflect on this modern phenomenon, and ask how we can be freed from the tyranny of moneyís power over us.
Peter Selby has since 2011 been one of the Directing Team at St Paulís Institute, and was until 2007 Bishop of Worcester and Bishop to HM Prisons. His previous book,Grace and Mortgage: The Language of Debt and the Faith of the World, published in 1997, foreshadowed many aspects of the financial crisis of 2007/8.
St Paulís Forum runs a programme of events at St Paulís Cathedral exploring Christian life and spirituality. The programme is open to all and will continue with retreats, reflective study days, services, public debates and talks.
