Format: Paperback
Brian Wren's modest volume is another good example of a serious book written in the years just before Reagan and Thatcher that still has value for its content, but also for what it says about where our Western and especially Anglo-American societies have gone since then. Orbis editor-in-chief Philip Scharper begins his editorial forward: “One of the most significant cultural shifts of this century has been the developing realization within the Western consciousness that justice is the burning issue of our time.” (xiii)
Who better to write seriously about this than a student of modern languages, philosophy, and theology who graduated from Oxford, then went on to spend six years as a pastor in a reformed church, then work with interfaith groups on international justice issues, including Oxfam? And he writes hymns, too!
The core of this important study is the idea of critical consciousness. Wren defines it as questioning our self-consciousness and remaking its interpretation of the world. Far too many of us are so comfortable in our First World privilege that we don't often hear the discordant voices that question our easy status quo, and if by some chance we hear them, we're pretty good at ignoring them. Far too often we self-censor what makes it through our cultural blinders and our cultural minders. Wren states the problem succinctly and well: “On every page of history, and in the most free society, we find attempts to silence people's capacity for critical thought or (more commonly) to allow them to ask only certain kinds of questions or think for themselves only within narrow limits. If critical consciousness is a distinct achievement of human life, we can say that to deny or restrict it in other people is to dehumanize [sic] them.
