Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hope for the Poor  May 14, 2008
Hope stays alive in The New Globalization: Reclaiming the Lost Ground of Our Christian Social Tradition by Richard W. Gillett. The book contains some wonderful historical reviews of how various societies through the ages have viewed poverty and work, and how the Church has responded. However, Gillett focuses mostly on the present period and its immediate antecedents and how an increasingly global economy is affecting both poverty and work. It raises alarm bells in anyone with half a Christian conscience.

In the book are some interesting stories of various Church responses to the growing crisis. If the reader has been around for many years, it is a pleasant jogging of memory. If the reader is fresher upon this earth, then it is a necessary prologue to the struggle ahead. Gillett ends with a hopeful agenda for action that is firmly based in theology, a sometimes ignored, but always necessary grounding.

In the end, one is torn between depression about the slender response of the Church to the crisis and stirrings of hope. Hope finally wins as the reader gets caught up in Gillett's passion for justice and the hope that this passion enkindles. The New Globalization is well worth reading.
 
God and Politics, Seen Through Clearer Eyes  Apr 20, 2006
Given popular fixation with the power of the Christian Right, Gillett has performed an exemplary service. Rooted in the Social Gospel tradition of American Christianity, rather than complain yet again about the CR, he has shown us the alternative. He has recovered not only the Social Gospel's moral convictions but its focus on the economic, political, and culturual injustices that it a century ago identified as the real challenge for compassionate conservatives and liberals who count themselves Christian.
Gillett takes us through Biblical teachings, the evolution of Church teachings, the Social Gospel period itself (during the late 19th and early 20th century)--and most important shown its relevance to the contemporary world. Just as the original Social Gospelers both intellectually opposed Social Darwinism and worked practically to reform the economy, politics, and the culture itself, so Gillett has crafted a book that sets out the intellectual arguments against unregulated markets, the practical consequences of not acting, and given us models of successful change meant to restore a more equitable and morally fit relationship among markets, democractic governments, and the culture as a whole.
Well worth reading.
