Becoming a Citizen of the World

Suffering and Solidarity in the 21st Century
  • By James A., III Dunson
  • By Donald H. Dunson
This study of the nature of our moral obligations to alleviate suffering on a global level addresses many of the vexing questions that face practitioners of Christian compassion: how do we avoid a kind of "poverty tourism" or "slacktivism" in our response to suffering, particularly far from home? How do we respond authentically and effectively in our strategies for solidarity with the poor and the underprivileged? Using personal anecdotes as well as philosophical and theological reflection, Donald and James Dunson emphasize the power of moral argument as well as personal experience in addressing what can seem an insurmountable catalog of evils and suffering in the world.

Approaching these issues from a number of backgrounds academic philosophy, pastoral counseling, theology, social science, and narrative approaches Dunson and Dunson have created a text perfect for use with high school and college classrooms, immersion groups, parish study groups, and service-learning programs.
