Faith and wealth

Boston College Professor of Sociology Paul Schervish, an expert on affluence, charitable giving and spirituality, has co-written (with Keith Whitaker) a new book titled Wealth and the Will of God: Discerning the Use of Riches in the Service of Ultimate Purpose that addresses the question: How can people of faith best connect their financial capacity to their spiritual aspirations?
Schervish, who also directs BC’s Center on Wealth and Philanthropy, says one thing is true– the need for a process of reflection that can help wealth holders discern, for the time and circumstances in which they exist, what to do with their material resources. Read an interview with Prof. Schervish in the most recent Boston College Chronicle.
