About-

Did biblical characters gamble in casting lots?
Did reliance on casting lots encourage gambling?
Do all risk-taking decisions have a gambling element?
Are Stock Exchange investments a form of gambling?
As more and more Christians are buying lottery tickets, Lotto: Is the Lottery Fun or Folly? examines and argues cogently the biblical, theological, historical, and ethical dimensions of lotteries. It provides up-to-date information on many of the increasingly popular forms of gambling, including charity gambling, but with particular emphasis on lotteries. It explores theological issues and examines biblical and historical viewpoints often overlooked by other works.

This book is highly readable style and nonjudgmental in its approach. It offers practical and pastorally sensitive advice on the control of gambling, and each chapter concludes with discussion questions to prompt further study.
