The chapter presents a discussion on the religious critiques of the market. It summarises the key perspectives on the relationship between religion and the market is presented. This overview explains that religion and the market are not necessarily in opposition. It also sets the ground for understanding the reason why religious critiques of the market adopt different approaches (e.g. revolutionary or reformist) toward capitalism. The second part of the chapter focuses on the most recurrent themes in the literature that generally echo the critiques of the market from the lens of major world religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam. The third and final section will propose areas for future research.
