Product Description

In this earnest discussion, revolutionary theologian John Cobb Jr. implores Christian churches to take a more active role in the solution of contemporary issues such as food security and the ever-expanding world population, the welfare system, civil and human rights, the war on drugs, abortion, immigration, and the destruction of ecosystems. Remaining passive under the guise of "separation of church and state" and being subsumed in the media by the vocal conservative church, mainline Christians have allowed to proliferate a warped view of where the majority of Christians stand. As Cobb explains, religion is an important factor in the solution of our current issues, and he points to the Members of the Mobilization for the Human Family as an exemplary Christian organization devoted to dealing with contemporary problems.
