The “Money Cult”, Chris Lehmann takes a lively look at the intersection of money and faith in American religion. He argues that the Puritans belief in good works as a sign of redemption reached its logical conclusion with their theological descendants, who deemed worldly goods as a mark of Gods favor. His book is “a tour de force” which tells how “Protestant theologians became the court poets of capitalism”(NYTBR). On a related theme, “Nature’s God” by Matthew Stewart explores the religious beliefs of our founding fathers.
