Abstract

In this book Peters helps first-world Christians with privilege think about how they might act in solidarity with those who suffer poverty and injustice as a result of neoliberal economic globalization. Peters first lays out two underlying problems of globalization: overconsumption by the world’s elite in the face of human suffering; and massive inequalities as a result of structural factors in our global society.
