In the United States, the Prosperity Gospel’s tenets, spread widely by many Protestant preachers, have creeped into the Catholic Church. Where did the Prosperity Gospel come from? And how has it embedded itself so deeply in this country?
In this book, Thomas Storck demonstrates the deep roots that the unrestrained desire for gain has in this country. He argues that the exclusion of serious religious discourse from American public life has led to the public square being emptied of all transcendence, reducing every aspect of social life to material gain: politics, the economy, education, science, the arts, and even religion itself.
How many of we Americans’ ordinary activities are undertaken solely for worldly comfort—with no reference to anything beyond this life, or even to our society’s common good? How deeply have we ourselves been affected by the allures of riches and wealth?
Here is a book that will expose one of the heresies that most vilely distorts the teachings of Christ: the Prosperity Gospel. Our treasure can only be found in heaven, not on earth. We must know the culture we live in that affects our daily living so that we can strive to be children of light and protect ourselves against the temptations of our times so that His will can be done on earth, as it is heaven.
