Plough Quarterly No. 36 - Money

What Is Money For?
  • By Clare Coffey, Eugene Vodolazkin, Eugene McCarraher
Product Description
Main Description: This issue opens with the story of Melania and her real estate-magnate
husband, who decide to divest themselves of their entire wealth. These early
Christians, who sold off their many estates and freed eight thousand slaves,
were only exceptional in the amount they gave away. Jesus, after all, had
advised a rich man, "Go, sell your
possessions, and give the money to the poor." And he emphatically warned that
you cannot serve two masters: you cannot serve God and money. What does that
mean for Christians today, in a society and economy premised on the
accumulation of capital? How can we resist and subvert the power of money?

On this theme:

- Clare Coffey looks at how multilevel marketing commodifies

- Sharon Rose Christner describes what happens when a Vatican palace
becomes a homeless shelter.

- Alastair Roberts writes in praise of Mary of Bethany's extravagant

- A photojournalist asks what's left of the Cuban Revolution
seventy years after it began.

- Jack Bell revisits William Cobbett's spirited defense of the
vanishing British commons.

- Maria Weiss finds pain and friendship in the forced community of
a leper colony.

- Maureen Swinger reveals the joys and pitfalls of owning twenty-two
cars (collectively).

- Robert Lockridge describes what he's learned running a pay-as-you-can

Also in the issue:

- The winning poems in the 2023 Rhina Espaillat Poetry Award

- An excerpt from Eugene Vodolazkin's new novel, A History of the Island

- Reviews of Kerri níiacute; Dochartaigh's Thin Places, Lydia Millet's Dinosaurs,
and Jennifer Banks's Natality

- Readings on Christianity and money from Eberhard Arnold, Peter Riedemann, Nicolai Berdyaev, Basil
of Caesarea, Maria Skobtsova, C. S. Lewis, and Dorothy Day

Plough Quarterly features stories, ideas, and culture for people eager to apply their faith
to the challenges we face. Each issue includes in-depth articles, interviews,
poetry, book reviews, and art.
