The Separation of Church and Estate: Capitalism and the Christian Conscience is Tylor Standley's debut, full-length book. In it, Tylor discusses Capitalism and its embeddedness in American Christianity. He suggests that Christians ought to allow space for healthy criticism of the economic system that most simply take for granted. In a world where the gap between the rich and poor grows daily, where the planet's resources are harvested to the detriment of the planet itself, where corporations control every decision we make, Christianity must separate itself from the idolatrous estate.
