From checks to credit cards, and now e-tithing at churches, Ethan Pope says, devices that bypass the use of cash are bad news. In a well-documented primer on these matters, the certified financial planner warns that cash could be outlawed and electronic ID systems used to invade our privacy and segregate people. For the present, he offers sound advice on how to use electronic money-transfer systems without risking identity theft. His advice is positioned around a literal belief in biblical scripture that will impress those who believe and will sound otherworldly to those who don't. Both groups will wonder why the audio's producers didn't do a better job of editing the author's reading glitches and coaching him on pronunciation errors.
