The Market & the Donor: Creative Destruction and Creative Construction

Written By: Martin E. Marty, Ph.D.

The Lake Family Institute was fortunate in securing Dr. Marty’s participation in its efforts to encourage reflection on the market, the donor, and the relationship of these two to faith. Dr. Marty is a widely sought-after speaker, has published more than 50 books, is a winner of the National Book Award, and is the author of a 2005 treatise on religious conflict (When Faiths Collide). In this lecture, which is a flagship program of the Lake Family Institute, he offers an original prescription for certain market-related ills of our time (of which the loss of any sense of Sabbath in a 24/7 world is a symptom). 

Martin E. Marty, Ph.D. is the Fairfax M. Cone Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of the History of Modern Christianity at the University of Chicago Divinity School.
