Church and Civil Society: A Theology of Engagement

Church and Civil Society: A Theology of Engagement




This book explores the relationship between church, state, markets and civil society. It focuses on the tension between the churches' responsibilities and contractual obligations as service provider in a particular political and economic context, and its commitment to being an agent of social justice, advocacy and responsive action for people who are disadvantaged or marginalised. As part of this it also examines the way community services are currently expected to operate in a climate of market driven economic objectives, privatisation, competition policy, and government social policy reforms. It covers themes such as terms of engagement, images of church, and spirituality and engagement.
