Reviews - What do customers think about Church and Civil Society (Atf Series : 8) (Atf Series : 8)?

thoughtful and thought-provoking reading  Aug 9, 2004
In Church And Civil Society, Francis Sullivan (Executive Director of Catholic Health Australia, Canberra) and Sue Leppert (Executive Director of Anglicare, Canberra and Goulburn) expertly collaborate to compile, organize and edit a number of informed and informative contributions focused on the relationship between theology, church, state, markets, and civil society. The tension between the churches' responsibilities and contractual obligations as a service provider in a particular political and economic context, with its commitment to being an agent of social justice, advocacy, and responsive action for the disadvantaged and the marginalized is analytically presented. Also explored are the way community services are currently expected to operate in a climate of Australia's market driven economic objectives, privatization, competition policy, and government social policy reforms. From terms of engagement, to images of church, to issues of spirituality and engagement, Church And Civil Society is strongly recommended to the attention of the Christian community as thoughtful and thought-provoking reading.
