Item description for A Moral Creed For All Christians by Daniel C. Maguire...

Overview
Widely heralded for his bold and prophetic ethical thought,Maguire urges that Christianity's real relevance for the renewal of American public life lies not in the myopic morality of the Christian Right nor in any particular program of the Left but in the enduring relevance of Jesus and biblical Christianity. His new work builds on his earlier volume, The Moral Core of Judaism and Christianity, with the benefit of a new generation of social studies of the New Testament and a keen appreciation for the radically changed situation Christians confront today.

Publishers Description
Maguire urges that Christianity's real relevance for the renewal of American public life lies not in the myopic morality of the Christian Right nor in any particular program of the Left but in the enduring relevance of Jesus and biblical Christianity. He explains Christianity's indispensable moral conviction about God's care, rapport with the earth, the nature of ownership, the bond between justice and peace, the nature of enmity, the illogic of militarism, and the creative potential of the human species. Includes questions for group discussion.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Moral Creed For All Christians?

Turning Christianity on its' head  Aug 29, 2006
In A Moral Creed for All Christians, author Daniel C. Maguire is turning Christianity on its' head in his plea for a return to the original faith of the community of Jesus. Maguire presents a powerful indictment on present day Christianity and how the influence of succeeding world empires has helped to suppress and distort the original teachings of Christ.

The Christian community could very well be ready for Maguire's prophetic "A Moral Creed" when one considers the alarming turmoil in the world today with no end in sight, and the pressing need for the Church to recognize the signs of the times in the 21st Century.

In fighting terrorism with terrorism, America is only creating more terrorism as it refuses to recognize the root causes of terrorism. After 2000 years, possibly Christianity is ready to awaken to the fact that there is no other way to world peace than through the original teachings of Christ.

Possibly, Christianity is ready to recognize the oppressive and unjust nature of global corporate capitalism and its' overseer American Empire. Possible,the Catholic Church is ready to dissect from its own body the cancerous tumor of ambitions of Empire.

In this regard, Catholic theologian Daniel C. Maguire authors a very timely book and his thesis is reinforced with many quotations and interpretations of Scripture.
