Why is the Atlantic slowly filling with crude petroleum, threatening a millions-of-years-old ecological balance? Why did traders at prominent banks take high-risk gambles with the money entrusted to them by hundreds of thousands of clients around the world, expanding and leveraging their investments to the point that failure led to a global financial crisis that left millions of people jobless and hundreds of cities economically devastated?

an amazing look into power structures that are shaping the world as we know know it, and how to prevent them from continuing. The narrator's frequent pauses during sentences is distracting, it may well be written that way but audibly it's difficult to ignore.

Former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can - except ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. We see how they rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; how they lavishly reward "thought leaders" who redefine "change" in winner-friendly ways; and how they constantly seek to do more good, but never less harm.

To understand Christian history and Western Civilization, one must understand Greek history. All four gospels were composed in Greek. The empire Alexander conquered and the culture his followers conveyed became the Roman territories in which Christianity first spread. Ancient Greek philosophers, particularly Aristotle, bequeathed to Christian theology a framework and method that profoundly shaped Christian faith down through the ages.
