E 203 Christianity and the Social Contract: Applying Theology to the Key Questions of Our Time (2001)


From politicians to economists, activists to world leaders, the language of the social contract is increasingly being used to tackle the social, environmental and ethical issues of our day.

This arresting study urges Christians to join the debate. It unpacks the origins of social contract ideas, explores how they relate to the biblical story, and suggests ways for Christians to wholeheartedly engage with the current potential for societal transformation at a pivotal juncture in human history.
