Editorial Reviews

Review

"Winsomely weaving together cultural analysis, Christian scriptures, Saint Augustine, Catholic social teaching, and theological construction, Michelle Gonzalez's ,Shopping, fashions a delightful tapestry illuminating the borderlands between temptation and tradition, wants and needs. Her incarnational theology refuses an easy Puritanical anti-materialism and suggests a practical reverence for life that can help readers keep shopping-for all its quotidian joys-in its proper place." --Jon Paul, Professor History of Christianity in North America. Author of Shopping Malls and other Sacred Spaces: Putting God in Place.

"Gonzalez not only provides some welcome remedies for the never-ending spiritualization of Christianity and the economy, she also proposes concrete steps for a new relation to the material world and even another materialism. This is where our work now begins." --Joerg Rieger, Wendland-Cook Professor of Constructivce Theology

Incredibly easy read yet full of profound messages. A great read for anyone considering finding perspective on how one can utilize consumerism in order to bring about good in this world.

By Mary on January 23, 2013
Format: Paperback
I shop a lot. I love "Deals", and often wonder what the real cost of this mentality is to my soul and my brothers and sisters across the world. My sister is also guilty of the same behavior. I found the book helpful and good for discussion. She is getting one for Christmas. I only wish it had smaller chapters and discussion questions at the end.
It will make you think.
