Gospel of Wealth?

I do intend to eventually read Platt’s book. David Brooks in the New York Times offers a warm review of the book. Naturally, Platt falls into the category of many evangelical leaders today (see Francis Chan) who believe consumerism has destroyed this country. “Sell everything you have” is the common refrain from these leaders. This seems to be a simple failure to understand calling and the good that money has done for the expansion of the gospel.
