Published in association with Caritas (the Catholic Church's agency for social justice), this book draws together a distinguished panel of academics and practitioners involved in the area of social justice. Combining theory and practice, the book explores issues facing the church and its role in today's society and the relationship between Theology, Social Justice and Social Spirituality. The book looks at how the church identifies its social priorities today, allocates its resource, shapes, facilitates and governs its practices, relates to and seeks to influence civil and secular society. In today's climate, the emerging relationship between religion and society is a matter of intense public interest and the book will also address the role of the church/faith in public life. The book also raises questions related to the nature of social ethics and social spirituality today. Particular problems and challenges pose pertinent questions both in relation to the church and society, and these also demand theological reflection, dialogue and exploration. Such themes include human liberation and freedom, globalisation, marginalisation, the changing anthropological bases of social ethics, as well as theological attempts to understand how the worlds of work and leisure relate to human being in both its individual and communal contexts.
