Drawing on a national survey of 2,000 Americans, Robert Wuthnow shows that organized religion in America actually encourages rampant materialism--and that people feel very troubled and ambivalent about this. Wuthnow concludes by giving churches and American society a sharp lesson about overcoming the love of money.
