Globalization is a reality in today's world, and with it comes the universalization of the influence of certain Powers and Authorities. These Authorities—Education, Law, Medicine, Technology—distance people from, and sometimes override the duties of, familial and religious connections and have generated new spheres of loyalty and practice that are touchstones for modern life as a whole.

The contributors claim that the Authorities of modernity depend upon spiritual themes and insights. However, they note, these authorities lack a conscious moral rudder because they are not only ignorant of their roots, but because they have often repudiated them, leaving these professions morally and spiritually vacuous. The essayists claim that theological and ethical resources—Christian in root, public in character, and universal in implication—can re-engage these Authorities and offer them guidance.

Contributors to the volume include: Richard Osmer (Princeton Theological Seminary); John Witte, Jr. (Emory University); Allen Verhey (Hope College); Ronald Cole-Turner (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary); Jürgen Moltmann (University of Tübingen); and Peter Paris (Princeton Theological Seminary). Max L. Stackhouse is the Stephen Colwell Professor of Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary and is the author of Christian Social Ethics in a Global Era. Don S. Browning teaches at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and is the author of Religious Thought and the Modern Psychologies: A Critical Conversation in the Theology of Culture.

From the Inside Flap:

God and Globalization: The Spirit and the Modern Authorities, the second in a four-volume set, provides a lively dialogue between theology, ethics, and social theory. By examining advances in technology and communication and the breakdown of traditional political structures, this series explores the impact that globalization has on our lives, ideas, and culture.

As Globalization continues apace, a number of Authorities or Powers - Education, Law, Medicine, Technology - have established ethical guidelines and social values that the world has begun to accept as normative. In God and Globalization, Volume 2, contributors confront these Authorities and engage them in theological and ethical discussion. In his examination of contemporary education, Richard Osmer demonstrates that religious communities can play a new and significant role in public education. John Witte, Jr. explores the relationship between human rights and religion in the new global era. Probing the implications of globalization for medical technology and health care, Allen Verhey argues that ethical consequences of any advances in medicine must be a part of the conversation about the usefulness of such advances. In his analysis of the relationship between theology and science, Ronald Cole-Turner warns against making a religion of technology. As a response to the destruction of the environment, Jürgen Moltmann proposes a "divine ecology" and a "Sabbath of the earth." Finally, Peter Paris asks whether a common moral discourse is possible, and suggests a model of virtue drawn from the lives and work of contemporary Christian and political exemplars of virtue such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Desmond Tutu.

This volume of God and Globalization offers an important and useful resource for understanding the forces of globalization and for discussing significant ways that communities can confront the changes that accompany globalization.
