Abstract

With increasing debt levels, ageing populations, climate change and deepening divisions between rich and poor, the world is staggering economically. Some Christian bodies have called for profound economic changes for the flourishing of human life in a more equitable and sustainable world. However, survey data shows that, while Christians have a compassion for the poor, many find it difficult to know how to apply the principles of the Christian faith to economic matters. In summarising some of the viewpoints, this paper aims to promote consideration of these issues, as human beings seek new, just and sustainable ways of living in a globalised world.
