Description

Jung Mo Sung has pioneered a theological analysis of economics in his previous publications, developing a penetrating ethico-religious critique of the international capitalist systems, whose institutions he likens to altars. Where ancient idolatry had visible altars, the modern altar of the `global market god', is invisible, but still demands human sacrifices in the name of `objective' desires. Here Sung recovers theology's relevance for a world where the most dangerous idols - those that sacrifice millions of people upon the altar of wealth - have for too long been ignored by theology. Desire, Market, Religion, Sung investigates themes such as the struggle against social exclusion, the relationship between economics and religion in the 21 century, where global brands and global economies reigns supreme, and theology's role in the struggle against social exclusion and the giving of hope for plenty, when the reality is scarcity.
