Review Quotes

Faithful Investing provides thoughtful insights and practical guidance from experts who daily navigate the multifaceted labyrinth of faith-based investing. The variety of approaches will assure congregations, organizations, and individuals at all levels of expertise and understanding that there are ways to synergize their resources and their heart-felt desires as followers of Jesus in ways that witness to the local, national, and global communities of which we are a part.
--Marcia Shetler, Executive Director/CEO Ecumenical Stewardship Center

This volume brings together essential information and important insights from across the ecumenical community that individuals and institutions in the Church can use as they seek to act consistently with their faith commitments in making decisions about financial assets and investments. Church investors can, with some study and thoughtful, prayerful consideration, make faithful choices about assets and investments - and that there is no single answer: different investors of faith can come up with different decisions of faith. Give thanks for what Jim Murphy and the contributors have given us!
--Bill McKeown, member, Episcopal Church's Task Force on Theology of Money

Faithful Investing shows us just how far communities of faith have come. Many of us remember how radical the very idea of socially responsible investing seemed to more than a few church folk just a few decades ago. Not so long ago, the idea that there could be a spirituality of investment strategy would have seemed a contradiction in terms to many. Though this useful book is not a history of that evolution, it is a tool that faith communities can use to find their place as part of it.
--Barbara Crafton, author
