What does it mean for the twenty-first century church to conceive of itself as a community defined by the covenant of grace? Grace and Global Justice explores the ramifications of this central Christian doctrine for the holistic mission of the church in the context of a globalized world. ""In this important book Richard Gibb provides an illuminating critical survey of key theological explorations of topics relating to political-economic concerns. But unlike so many theological explorations of such matters, that stay mostly on the level of generalization, he demonstrates--in ways that I found extremely insightful--the actual connections of theology to urgent issues of economic justice, globalization, and political authority."" --Richard Mouw, President and Professor of Christian Philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary ""What is particularly impressive about this volume is the author's lucid and clear-headed articulation of the light which the doctrine of our participation by grace in God's covenant purposes serves to shed on the nature of our participation in a globalized world. This goes hand in hand with an analysis couched in a scholarly and informed expertise in politics and economics which is admirably free from emotive rhetoric."" --Alan Torrance, Chair of Systematic Theology, University of St. Andrews ""Globalization is a vital issue for the church today, and Richard Gibb has important things to say about it. Especially prominent in his lucid argument is a concern that the church's approach to issues of global justice be rooted in the theology of grace. This is interdisciplinary thinking from a thoroughly Christian theological base."" --William F. Storrar, Director, Center of Theological Inquiry, Princeton ""This book is an excellent scholarly treatise and deserves to be read by everyone interested in making global capitalism more inclusive and socially acceptable."" --John H. Dunning, Emeritus Professor of International Business, University of Reading and Emeritus Professor of International Business, Rutgers University ""Globalization is a vital issue for the church today, and Richard Gibb has important things to say about it.
