Ecumenical social ethics is in crisis. The fundamental difficulty in the last fifty years or so of ecumenical social-ethical thought lies in its seemingly congenital tendency toward high-mindedly idealistic generalizations and pronouncements. The essays in this book, drawn from the 1999-2005 Ecumenical Institute seminar conceived and led by Julio de Santa Ana, offer an alternative vision - one "beyond idealism." They address a situation of conceptual paralysis in theological-ethical reflection at the global level, owing partly to continuing tensions among the churches and partly to radical methodological contextualization in the work of scholars in this field. Simultaneously, ecumenical ethicists face globalized economic and other forces that grind the faces of the poor and also threaten the quality, and even the continuation, of life on this planet. As a whole this volume calls us to build concrete social frameworks that sustain life, in the process addressing each situation in all its particularity and detail, as we follow in each case, with secular allies and those of other faiths, some part of the Way toward fulfillment of the Abrahamic covenantal promise to "all the families of the earth" (Genesis 12:3).
