The End of Greed

The “End of Greed: Consuming as if God, People & the Planet Matter” is a 5 part book, small group Bible study and preaching series that will help you grapple with what it means to be a follower of Jesus in a consumer culture.

The End of Greed has been produced by Baptist World Aid Australia and is endorsed by GMP as a high quality discipleship resource for you and your community.

Bible Study Outline:

Each week, the Bible study is divided into three sections which explore:

1.            What is the issue?

2.            What does the Bible say?
