4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 19, 2005
Format: Paperback
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.
