Author: CJS Hayward

Genre: creative non-fiction / religion and spirituality / technology – social aspects

Rating: B+

Mammon, as it is challenged in the Sermon on the Mount, represents such wealth and possessions as one could have two thousand years ago. But that is merely beer as contrasted to the eighty proof whisky our day has concocted. The Sermon on the Mount aims to put us in the driver’s seat and not what you could possess in ancient times, and if the Sermon on the Mount says something about metaphorical beer, perhaps there are implications for an age where something more like eighty proof whisky is all around us.

An interesting look on how technology has changed the social aspects of our life, and how it has changed our culture, our views on religion and spirituality and more. The book offers a deeper insight into these matters without sounding too preachy.
