Summary
"Christ and the Common Life provides an introduction to historical and contemporary theological reflection on politics and opens out a compelling vision for a Christian commitment to democracy. In dialogue with Scripture and a wide variety of traditions, Luke Bretherton examines the dynamic relationship between who we are in relation to God and who we are as moral and political animals. He addresses fundamental political questions about poverty and injustice, forming a common life with strangers, and handling power constructively. And through his analysis of debates concerning, among other things, race, class, economics, the environment, and interfaith relations, he develops an innovative political theology of democracy as a way through which Christians can speak and act faithfully within the current context. Bretherton guides readers through the political landscape and identifies the primary vocabulary, ideas, and schools of thought that shape Christian reflection on politics in the West. Ideal for the classroom, Christ and the Common Life equips students to understand the positive and negative roles of politics in fostering neighbor love."-- jacket
