RTB-4: Religion vs Progress

Should religion serve commerce? Vice versa? Or something more?
Religious Entrepreneurship in Nevil Shute’s Round the Bend

What is this book about?

Is it primarily about commerce, with a veneer of religion?
The other way around?
An exploration of the human tension between them?
A hopeful vision of a future where they are reconciled?
