Item Description...
Theories of generosity, or gift giving, are becoming increasingly important in recent work in philosophy and religion. Stephen Webb seeks to build on this renewed interest by surveying a distinctively modern and postmodern approach to the issue of generosity, and then developing a theological framework for it. He contends that in many ways society has become suspicious of charity and generosity. This cynicism has led to quick and easy judgments, that, in turn, have led to a new orthodoxy with its own troubling consequences. Webb believes that we need to recover the generosity that our culture obscures behind this monologue on self-interest, and that theology, as a form of critical thought, can play a helpful role. Throughout the book, Webb argues for a theory of giving that is other-oriented without being self-negating. He maintains that the generosity of God's grace, properly understood, can reorient our own idea of the gift and must be correlated to our own practices of exchange and reciprocity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
absolutely brilliant  Dec 21, 2007
truth is revealed in this book and you will love it. webb's writing style can be difficult to follow but push on and don't be discouraged. he says things that need to be heard and understood. very heady stuff. our world is trapped in a horrific phase of wealth-worship and love of money. jesus provided the formula to break this cycle but the magic wasn't truly appreciated. webb helps expalin it. you will love it and grow if you push through this very intellectual but magnificent treatise. god bless you.
