God and Globalization by Max L. Stackhouse

Book Description

Globalization is a reality in today's world, and with it comes the universalization of the influence of certain Powers and Authorities. These Authorities Education, Law, Medicine, Technology distance people from, and sometimes override the duties of, familial and religious connections and have generated new spheres of loyalty and practice that are touchstones for modern life as a whole. The contributors claim that the Authorities of modernity depend upon spiritual themes and insights. However, they note, these authorities lack a conscious moral rudder because they are not only ignorant of their roots, but because they have often repudiated them, leaving these professions morally and spiritually vacuous. The essayists claim that theological and ethical resources Christian in root, public in character, and universal in implication can re-engage these Authorities and offer them guidance. Contributors to the volume include: Richard Osmer (Princeton Theological Seminary); John Witte, Jr. (Emory University); Allen Verhey (Hope College); Ronald Cole-Turner (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary); Jurgen Moltmann (University of Tubingen); and Peter Paris (Princeton Theological Seminary). Max L. Stackhouse is the Stephen Colwell Professor of Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary and is the author of Christian Social Ethics in a Global Era. Don S. Browning teaches at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and is the author of Religious Thought and the Modern Psychologies: A Critical Conversation in the Theology of Culture.

God and Globalization by Max L. Stackhouse God and Globalization, Paperback (January 2010)

Despite the predicted secularization of the world, religion continues to grow as a global influence, one that has the power to unify or to divide. Part of the "God and Globalization" series, this title investigates what happens when we account for religion as a force that shapes our increasingly common life on earth.

Covenant and Commitments by Max L. Stackhouse Covenant and Commitments, Paperback (April 1997)

Recognizing the inadequacy of current "family values" rhetoric, ethicist Max Stackhouse proposes a covenantal ethic of the family that accounts for the changing landscape of our homes and our workplaces.
