Money: The Root of All Evil, Or Our Salvation?

The Revd Canon Professor Richard Burridge

Jesus talked more about money than about anything else. Can the teachings of a penniless ancient ascetic be applied to debates about Brexit, protests about global capitalism, and wider investment not only in defence, alcohol or tobacco but also positively in the environment, sustainability and good governance? 

Professor Burridge considers ethical material across the New Treatment, drawing upon experience as the Deputy Chair of the Church of England's Ethical Investment Advisory Group.
