Additionally, I'm frustrated with them for not making these texts readily available, as a set as regular ePub or PDF—you can easily buy individual volumes In watermarked pdf , but as far as I can see you can't buy them as a whole set in pdf or any other digital format.
Even with Amazon, you can buy the hardcovers, but the "Kindle Edition" that is linked is actually only selections, and not the whole deal. Very frustrating, but I don't blame Accordance. Just wish it was different. PDFs can be edited to remove copy protection and watermarks, if you know how and have the right tools.

It also isn't clear how Rieger's talk of markets functions with Joerg Rieger adds nothing to this discussion in any meaningful way how many other text's are out there that critique trickle down economics? It also isn't clear how Rieger's talk of markets functions within his text.
For example, is it market qua market that leads to greed and the other problems? The impression is that it is indeed the "market's" fault. But how does Rieger understand the market and what it does? Jan 03, Chris rated it it was amazing Shelves: class-union , theology.
Every preacher in America needs to read this book. I go back and forth on whether it's a great book or not, but it's useful , and we all need it.
Theologians are always saying that sort of thing, but hear me out here. You couldn't write this book so accessibly and also make it a game-changer for systematic theology, or I assume for economics. What it does is make connections between them that desperately need making. Regular readers of policy and economic thought between, say, Ezra Klein and Dou Every preacher in America needs to read this book. Regular readers of policy and economic thought between, say, Ezra Klein and Doug Henwood will find little news here; likewise theologians versed in the line that runs historically from early Barth to the high liberationism of the '80s.
But those are both specialist discourses, the stuff of seminary doctorates and Internet wonkery. They really belong together, in the pulpits of mainline churches, giving preachers insight into Scripture and their people's lives that their congregations could never hear otherwise. I recall vividly the first time I preached on economics.
The text that week was an extract from the Sermon on the Mount, but it could have been almost anything: Jesus talks about money a lot. I've seen stronger congregational responses to preaching, but not often. Not that I was that awesome; looking back on my text, it could have been better in every way.
But I'd stumbled on a hunger people didn't realize they had. This congregation of do-gooder liberals was terrified of their economic future. They'd learned how to fight for equal marriage, but not for jobs and education and health care. Rieger is diagnosing, not prescribing. But the prescriptions will come from organizing-- and this is a book that'll get you wanting to organize. Rieger spends the first chapters of his book laying out how "mainline" economics and religion have co-evolved in twentieth-century America. It's an insightful label, referring generally to the predominant beliefs of the White middle class.
Hacker won't be surprised by this volume's narration of that middle class's decline since the '70s, but Rieger's account is pithy and clear, if obviously dependent on his sources. If you don't already know this story, this isn't a bad place to learn it-- and one place or another, you really should. What is crucial here is Rieger's call for doubt. The exponents of markets-- in our public discourse, and in the churches themselves-- are constantly making claims about them that look suspiciously divine. We must trust the gods markets, or they will turn on us. Their power is infinite, as is their benevolence to those who will serve them.
They are omnipresent-- or rather, their absence is hell.ipdwew0030atl2.public.registeredsite.com/331797-kik-tracking-app.php
