“We are gripped by the power of consumerism – but it doesn’t have to be that way,” says the theologian Dr Eve Poole.

In her new book, Buying God: Consumerism and theology, published by SCM Press, Eve Poole explores how we can wean ourselves off the material and on the eternal. She has also written on the subject in the Comment section of this week’s Church Times.

Ed Thornton spoke to Eve about the new book, which is available from the Church House Bookshop at a special offer price of £14.99.

Dr Eve Poole is an academic, teaches leadership to business leaders, and is Third Church Estates Commissioner.
