For God and Profit
Finance, Capital, and the Good Life
  • By Samuel Gregg
The work of those involved in finance has always been immersed in a fog of moral ambiguity. One reason for the confusion is a lack of concrete knowledge of what bankers really do and why. The need to gain such knowledge before rendering moral judgment has been underscored by some of modern Christianity s finest minds. Though many of us live in religiously pluralist societies in which it can t be assumed that everyone understands Christianity s core beliefs, many people nonetheless want to know what Christians think. Where faithful Christians differ from most secular approaches to finance is that Christians cannot accept appeals to expediency or utility-maximization as the decisive criteria for making moral decisions. Finance is unquestionably a sphere of life in which people are subject to particular temptations just as politics and ordained ministry are callings with their own potential pitfalls that lure people towards choosing sin. But while the Christian moral life is certainly concerned with not doing evil, finance is far from being an intrinsically problematic activity. "For God and Profit" offers a clear, accessible argument for all involved and interested in matters of finance and ethics considerations regarding finance."
