Description

In "The Gospel and Globalization" leading and emerging Christian scholars weigh in on the question of how Western Christians can formulate a faithful response to one of the most powerful currents of our day-globalization. Written for undergraduate students, this collection of essays covers numerous issues including the Canadian oil sands, Naomi Klein's influential "Shock Doctrine, " entrepreneurship, and Islam, and spans a breadth of disciplinary approaches from literary production to economics, from technology to urban art, from theology to business. Together these articles demonstrate the importance of identifying and understanding the religious roots of globalization. The authors call their readers to live purposefully, analyse carefully, and dream of radical alternatives in the hope of God's better future.
