Praise for the second edition:
“A fantastic resource for teaching and research in social ethics. . . . A wealth of background information is presented in a readable format that accentuates the moral implications of the political and economic facts.”—Lisa Sowle Cahill, Boston College
“Presents global issues in a way that matters to the college student, thoughtful Christians, and seeking inquirers.”—Catholic Press Association
The third edition of this popular classroom text provides thoroughly revised and updated discussions of key topics including ethno-nationalist conflict, terrorism, and poverty and development, as Thompson masterfully brings a Christian perspective to bear on the world situation. He provides an introduction to current obstacles to justice and peace across the globe and encourages Christians to draw upon an informed faith to transform themselves and the world.
Milburn Thompson is professor emeritus of theology at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of Introducing Catholic Social Thought (Orbis) and many articles in the areas of social justice and moral theology.
