We all recognize how prevalent the desire for money and possessions is in our culture. Yet the Bible encourages us to be content with what we have, with what God has given us.
When do our desires for “more” become greed?
How does greed in the life of a modern Christian resemble the idolatry in the Old Testament life of the Israelites?
This book takes a look at Bible references to show what God’s word has to say about greed in the life of a Christian.  Colossians 3:5 reveals that greed is idolatry.  The book shows parallels between greed in the church and the idolatry that provoked God’s judgment in the Old Testament.   A serious topic which could hold serious consequences for God’s people...but God’s truth is good, and His love for His church is redeeming.
