Concern for the economy is a vital area for Christian reflection and action, though it has been surprisingly misunderstood and underplayed. This new volume, a vital resource for practitioners and students of theology, church history and the social sciences, provides a critical history of the Churches' responses to rapidly changing socio-economic structures. The authors draw together a wide range of important but relatively inaccessible texts which illustrate the British Churches' engagement with the industrial and economic dimensions of society since the Second World War as part of their mission and theological reflection. Concise and very readable commentaries put the documents in their context so that a clear and coherent picture emerges.
