In The Danger of Prosperity, Bates insightfully teaches Christians how wealth, honor, and fame often contributes to the downfall of the unwary. He challenges his readers-with the tender encouragement of a shepherd-to carefully consider the ways in which the abuse of prosperity is both deadly and destructive. He also provides numerous helps that Christians who enjoy God's hand of blessing can use to avoid its sinful abuse and improve it to God's glory and their eternal advantage.
