Reviews - What do our customers think?
An ideal start...  Oct 20, 2005
The Oxford Conference on Christian Faith and Economics was held January 4 - 9, 1990, but is in many ways an ongoing project. As Ronald Sider states in the introduction, 'it has not been a common experience to hear liberation-oriented theologians affirming free-market strategies of conservative market economists demanding a special focus on justice for the poor.' However, this is very much what happened at the conference at its start, and it proved that there is a great deal more common ground between what is often portrayed in the media (academic and otherwise) as polar opposites.

There were low expectations all around, with each side fearing that they would not get a fair hearing from the other side. However, in the atmosphere of open inquiry and worshipful respect both for God and for each other, a remarkable consensus on many issues was reached. The Oxford Declaration itself contains signatories from among economists, political leaders, business leaders, ethicists, theologians, and church leaders. The affirmed, among other things, a commitment to a scriptural basis of their work, a need for stewardship and justice, the idea of work and human labour as being something to be respected and respectful, and a need for human rights to be supported, such that the freedoms and rights enjoyed by Western people may be made secure for them, and extended to those in the rest of the world.

The second and third parts of this text consist of essays drawn from key thinkers who participated in the conference. Authors include Miroslav Volf, Joe Remenyi, Bill Taylor, E. Calvin Beisner, Stephen Charles Mott, Peter J. Hill, Herbert Schlossberg, Michael Novak, Derek Cross, Rob van Drimmelen, Donald Hay, Lawrence Adams, and Frederick Jones. These essays look at issues of justice, stewardship, poverty, and how action needs to be done.

In the final section, James Skillen draws upon the previous essays to show how things need to progress. Refining responsibility among the signers is one point - whenever the Declaration says 'we affirm...', exactly who are 'we'? What is each individual's responsibility, and what is the responsibility of larger corporate bodies?

What the Declaration lacks, according to Skillen, is a definite plan of action. This book gets high praise for allowing criticism such as Skillen's to be incorporated into the text. Skillen writes, 'A casual reader could come away from this document believing that it really is a statement of principles, when in fact, it is a general Christian confession about life with some reference to a variety of economically connected realities. It does not go very far in articulating a Christian understanding of economics, production, business, labor, public policy, and the responsibilities of the multiple institutions of our society for economic justice. That remains to be done.'

Let us hope that Sider's introductory claim that this is an ongoing process remains uppermost in the minds of the participants. It is unfortunate that we are now fifteen years removed from the Conference, and still much needs to be done.
