Writer G. Jeffrey MacDonald has traveled the United States extensively reporting on religious faith in America for publications such as Time, Newsweek, and the Christian Science Monitor. He is also an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ denomination who has witnessed first-hand the failure of faith communities to raise up people of good character. Instead, churches have become havens of consumerism, where the ails of society (overeating, overspending, and overextending) are no less apparent inside congregational walls than outside them. Join us at 2 pm on Wednesday as we talk with Jeff about his new book, Thieves in the Temple, and the cost of consumerism in religious life.
