More About This Textbook


Globalization is both an economic and cultural phenomenon. While it brings many benefits - creating wealth and opening up societies -- it is also creating gross inequalities. The unrestricted movement of capital can leave whole communities devastated as production moves elsewhere at short notice in search of lower costs.^Justice, Mercy and Humility explores the challenge of integral mission among the poor today. It locates the Christian response within a world of alternatives -- alternatives at the macro-level of policies and advocacy, and the micro-level of lifestyle, and affirms the need to integrate ourselves within a 'total missional response to the poor'.^Combining case studies from around the world with Jesus' own teaching and ministry, the book considers what it means for the church to be a countercultural ministry, and in doing so raises new questions about what it means to be church. What is the 'church' and what is 'church culture'? How can we help rather than hinder 'the church of the poor'?
