Mr. Sutherland then reflects on his parents and their Christianity, the lives of his brothers and sisters, his wife's great influence upon his formation of Christian principles, and his own Christian position. Mr. Sutherland speaks quite strongly about Christian business ethics, his view of the economy, and his distaste for an unchecked free enterprise system. In his master's study of usury in the Old Testament, he developed his own Christian view of social concerns, along with a growing wonder at the lack of charity in an increasingly affluent North America.
