Endorsements

“Superb. . . . The best Christian ethical thinking we have on complex global issues that affect all of us. Don’t miss it!” -Cornel West, Princeton University

“Global Neighbors is essential for anyone who wishes to reflect thoughtfully as a Christian on the economic challenges we face today. Its authors insist that the Christian tradition of loving one’s neighbor obliges us to engage the full complexities of these challenges and to act in ways that show true regard for neighbors both near and far. This volume takes a big step toward an engaged social Christianity that goes beyond any dichotomy of liberalism vs. neo-orthodoxy.” -Elizabeth M. Bounds, Emory University

“Hicks and Valeri gather a remarkably diverse group of wise voices on the contemporary global economy and its ethical and pragmatic challenges to North American Christians. Pastors, economists, and religious scholars all contribute their perspectives on the emergent and enduring realities of the global market; this multiplicity of perspectives by itself makes the book valuable. What makes it essential reading is how clear-eyed the analysis is without giving up hope in a better common human future. In a sea of scolds, screeds, and fear-mongering about the global economy, Global Neighbors provides a firm island upon which to engage in further thought and constructive action.” -James Hudnut-Beumler, Vanderbilt University

“Global Neighbors offers a rich variety of resources for considering the challenges of poverty and environmental degradation on a global scale. The volume is enhanced by the differences and disagreements among authors sharing a Christian-informed concern to respect the dignity of humans and our increasingly shared environment.” -Harlan R. Beckley, Washington and Lee University

Publisher Description

How can people of faith meet the challenge of living morally and faithfully within an increasingly globalized society? Much of the debate about the global market economy is polarized between pro-market ideology and anti-globalization activism. Global Neighbors sidesteps that dichotomy, presenting instead a nuanced, constructive approach. Leading theologians, ethicists, economists, and church leaders here examine the Christian call to live morally, faithfully, and responsibly in today’s global marketplace and offer alternative perspectives to such utilitarians as Peter Singer.
