Development Matters: Christian Perspectives on Globalization
Church House Publishing, 2001 - Philosophy - 162 pages
How can Governments, international organizations and civil society work together to ensure that globalization works to the advantage, rather than the detriment, of the world´s poor? This question remains central to recent debates about globalization.
Looking at diverse areas such as international development, world trade, global warming, HIV/AIDS and e-commerce, this collection of essays helps Christians to grapple with the complexity of globalization and what it means to be Christian in a global context. Drawn from differing theological backgrounds, each chapter is written by an expert in his or her field. This book does not attempt to offer a blueprint for Christian thought; rather, it offers a number of perspectives to prompt serious Christian reflection and action.
