Philip Goodchild


On his book Theology of Money

Cover Interview of November 29, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Economic life is constrained by the perpetual need for acquiring money.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Debt has replaced God as the guarantee for human cooperation, and our modern globalised world is driven by the religion of money.”

On the second:

“Theology must become a critical engagement with the actual fundamental forces and structures that shape our lives, rather than simply a reflection upon past traditions.  A rather tentative proposal for institutional reform of money, banking, credit, and evaluation is part of the new theological agenda.”
