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. Yet contemporary discussions of globalization rarely take religion into account. The contributors to this third volume in the God and Globalization series investigate what happens when we account for religion as a force that shapes our increasingly common life on earth. They look at the effect of religion within and across national borders and cultures: how the world is brought together by common ethical perspectives, and pushed apart by the different ultimate concerns of each religion. God and Globalization: Christ and the Dominions of Civilization offers fresh perspectives and interpretations on religion and the politics, economics, and culture of globalization. It points readers toward the pivotal factors that will determine the fate of our common human destiny. Max L. Stackhouse, coordinating editor of the God and Globalization series, is Stephen Colwell Professor of Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary, and author of Creeds, Societies and Human Rights: A Study in Three Cultures, Public Theology and Political Economy, and Covenant and Commitments. Diane B. Obenchain is Visiting Professor in the Department of Religious Studies, Beijing University, and Fellow, The Casperson School of Graduate Studies at Drew University. She is the author of For China: Comparative Essays on Moral Leadership.
