Our friends at The Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy are hosting a Webinar and breakfast with Jay Richards, author of the bestseller Money, Greed and God: Why Capitalism is the Solution and Not the Problem (see review at the Acton Institute's Power Blog by Ray Nothstine and the review at First Things' Wintery Knight blog). In his book, Richards argues capitalism is fully consistent with Biblical teaching and why it is the best bet for a renewed economy (see interview with Kevin DeYoung at at the Gospel Coalition). Richards is a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute and a contributing editor of The American at the American Enterprise Institute. In recent years, he has been a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation, and a research fellow and Director of Acton Media at the Acton Institute.
The breakfast is Wednesday, October 13, from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. at the Atrium of the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association building, 4200 Innslake Drive, in Glen Allen. The cost is $7.95 per person but $8.00 if you bring your minister as your guest. Click here to register online.
TJIPP also is hosting a Webinar with Mr. Richards on Tuesday, October 12, from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. To register for the Webinar, call (703) 440-9447. We encourage attendance at both events to learn more about the very important topic of maintaining a relationship with God while participating in a capitalistic society.
