How to Survive Christmas Shopping: The Antidote to Consumerism with Eve Poole
- Course Dates: Wed 21 November 2018, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Talk by engaging speaker Eve Poole, followed by a book signing for her new book, Buying God.
Drawing on the Church’s rich traditions of Social Liturgy, ‘Buying God’ calls on the Christian community to renew its confidence and strength in proclaiming this good news. Uniting theoretical work on theology, capitalism and consumerism with a scheme of detailed practical action, the book explores how we can wean ourselves off the material and on to the eternal, through prayer, example, and vibrant social action.
Eve Poole is the Third Church Estates Commissioner, and Chairman of the Board of Governors at Gordonstoun. She has a BA from Durham, an MBA from Edinburgh, and a PhD in Theology and Capitalism from Cambridge. She is the author of Capitalism’s Toxic Assumptions (Featherstone 2015) and Leadersmithing (Bloomsbury 2017).
