How does one speak about the really big questions of our time - waging war, making ends meet, and preserving the planet? What does it mean to think ethically in a world marked by fear of terror, economic anxiety and ecological meltdown? Can revisiting the moral wisdom of the historical Jesus or learning about the moral perspectives of our global neighbors help us address our fears?In ""Ethics in a Global World"", Jack Hill connects the dots between what Jesus said long ago and what we experience today in a radically new way by linking the voice of Jesus to unheard voices of contemporary, largely marginalized, social and political movements. He draws on his firsthand experiences living overseas to introduce readers to the moral thinking of Pacific islanders, Jamaican Rastafarians and a new generation of South Africans. If Americans are to live the good life in the global village, he argues, we need to be in creative dialogue with neighbors overseas, and that dialogue will enable us to experience our own American moral heritage, as well as the Jesus tradition, in fresh ways.
