A sweeping intellectual history of the role of wealth in the church in the last days of the Roman Empire Jesus taught his followers that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Yet by the fall of Rome, the church was becoming rich beyond measure. Through the Eye of a Needle is a sweeping intellectual and social history of the vexing problem of wealth in Christianity in the waning days of the Roman Empire, written by the world's foremost scholar of late antiquity. Peter Brown examines the rise of the church through the lens of money and the challenges it posed to an institution that espoused the virtue of poverty and called avarice the root of all evil. Drawing on the writings of major Christian thinkers such as Augustine, Ambrose, and Jerome, Brown examines the controversies and changing attitudes toward money caused by the influx of new wealth into church coffers, and describes the spectacular acts of divestment by rich donors and their growing influence in an empire beset with crisis. He shows how the use of wealth for the care of the poor competed with older forms of philanthropy deeply rooted in the Roman world, and sheds light on the ordinary people who gave away their money in hopes of treasure in heaven. Through the Eye of a Needle challenges the widely held notion that Christianity's growing wealth sapped Rome of its ability to resist the barbarian invasions, and offers a fresh perspective on the social history of the church in late antiquity.

The re-issue of Richard Turner's Eye of the Needle comes at a critical time in South African history, along side the revival of Black Consciousness and a reconsideration of what Tony Morphet famously called the 'Durban Moment'. Turner was a central figure in the white South African student movement, and a key figure in the radicalization of its critical project. Inspired by events in Paris '68, he returned to South Africa after acquiring his doctorate at the Sorbonne, and became increasingly influenced by Steve Biko and the Black Consciousness movement. He was a relentless advocate of education among the then non-unionized Black labour force, and a founder of the Institute of Industrial Education. The Eye of the Needle was Turner's most incendiary text: a utopian statement advocating the creation of a socialist society through the cultivation of a 'radical theoretical attitude', couched in the metaphors of Christian ideology. The book was a political scandal and Turner was banned as a result, confined to his home before being assassinated by state security forces in 1978, a few months after Biko's death. Against the backdrop of new labour disputes and the appearance of new unions, and with the emergent calls for a re-radicalization of South African politics, The Eye of the Needle is newly relevant. Accompanied by Tony Morphet's exceptionally insightful contextualizing essays, the book provides readers with an excellent entry point for both historical reflection on the 1970s and a critical engagement with the question of how to bring about social justice today.

I have been to the peak of achievement both physically and mentally and have fallen to the depths of despair entangled in the darker side of life deep within oneself. I write of very real solutions to find a more profound connection with the world around and overcome the mundane, which is so common in a routine, predictable world we can find ourselves in. I have suffered very real problems and on more than one occasion have found myself in circumstances where, in most cases, there is little chance of getting back to not only a normal way of life but to a way of life where I could really achieve and have a productive and fulfilling life. There are few positives that can be drawn from the agony of mental illness other than those that are procured from the challenge of the experience. When you experience such a condition, you are open to wider range of thoughts and see visit areas of the mind that many of us would never know in our everyday lives. If you are strong inside and maintain a belief in yourself, it is possible to articulate these thoughts and feelings and present them to others so they can not only benefit from avoiding the traps and pitfalls that lead us to lose control of our lives but to benefit from the insight I have gained in fighting all the way back from the deepest darkest recesses of the mind. What fundamentally we need most of all in life is what I term a touch of magic to provide some hope for love in the harshness ultimately of the world in which we live. This translates to religion usually in a wider sense, but I have found the road for individuals to take this path after much soul searching. I guarantee successful application in nearly all areas, and I assure you, I am a compassionate believer in the materialalthough take heed, all things should be taken in measure, and you should develop your own understanding.
