Product Description

This comprehensive and timely study examines the effects of globalization on the earth's poorest and most vulnerable people within the contexts of Scripture and church teaching. Stories of the women, men, and children living in poverty who have experienced both the promise of the global economy and its troubling outcomes illustrate and inform the author's contention that the endless demand of the developed world for cheap and accessible commodities is increasingly damaging the cultures and economies of developing nations.

While not flinching from incisive analysis of the troubling effects of globalization, the authors also offer "signs of hope" in each chapter, singling out groups and individuals who strive to prevent the marginalization of the world's poor in the face of seemingly insurmountable economic and social barriers to healthy and sustainable prosperity.
