Proverbs 22:22 enjoins the reader, "Don’t take advantage of the poor just because you can." Mammon’s Ecology is a systematic investigation into the mysterious nature of modern money, which confronts us with the perplexing fact that, in the global economy as it is, we take advantage of the poor whether we want to or not. We destroy natural systems whether we want to or not.
Ched Myers describes Mammon’s Ecology as a "workbook" about "the secret life of money." Where Prather and others have shown that money is one of the perverse Powers described in Ephesians 6, Mammon’s Ecology details precisely how money exercises this peculiar power and outlines suggestions for Christians who feel trapped in this complicity–not just as individuals, but as church. Mammon’s Ecology is not a book about economics (which the author calls "the world’s best antidote to insomnia"), but rather a book about the "deep ecology" of (post)modern power and injustice. Read individually or as a group, Mammon’s Ecology will leave you unable to think about money the same way again.
