Inspirations for an “economy of life” in The Ecumenical Review

28 July 2015

The possibility of a new economic framework is the chief focus of the newly published issue of The Ecumenical Review.  Informed by years of ecumenical work on the relationship of poverty, wealth and ecology (including the proposal for a “greed line”), the 14 contributors offer an array of insights from specific contexts and religious standpoints – Dalits, South Africans, Latin Americans, Indigenous spirituality, feminist theology and non-Christian religions – into the values and structures that can create an “economy of life” for all.

The rich issue of The Ecumenical Review also includes four expert articles on the ecumenical legacy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who died 70 years ago, and tributes to the recently deceased former WCC general secretary, Philip A. Potter.
