Genuine Christianity for the Middle Class
Intimate friendships, loving families, good food, and beautiful homes: middle-class Westerners enjoy so many gifts. Christians often feel guilty about their enjoyment of these gifts, but David McCarthy suggests that God provides these things for our enjoyment. In contrast to consumerism, which encourages shallow relationships, McCarthy explains how the love of God fosters a deep attachment to the world. He describes this in relation to marriage, family, friendship, hospitality, and work. A right ordering of our desires will lead Christians to an enjoyment of life that require less “stuff.” This book will be appreciated by all Christians trying to live well in an affluent culture.
