Money, Sex and Power: The Challenge of the Disciplined Life

Front Cover
Hodder & Stoughton, 2009 - Christian life - 272 pages

No issues touch us more profoundly or universally,' writes Richard Foster. 'No topics cause more controversy. No human realities have greater power to bless or curse. No three things have been more sought after or are more in need of a Christian response.'

Money, Sex and Power discerns the biblical principles that enable us to live out a relevant and authentic response to the three greatest temptations of our age.

Gerard Kelly writes: 'Foster follows a road few in recent years have travelled, and does so with depth, wit and down-to-earth wisdom. Don't assume for one moment that this book is anti-money, anti-sex or anti-power: the author has a healthy respect and admiration for all three as sacred gifts of a loving creator. What he does urge us to do, though, is to "live rightly" in respect of these key ares, and so to be freed into a life of creative celebration.'

This thoughtful and challenging book helps readers to sort out ways of modeling one's life after Jesus in the context of the most fallen (and potentially most blessed aspects of life). He discusses the implications of both the twisting and redemption of "money, sex and power." Read full review
