Are the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? Inequality and Christian Ethics addresses this question at an international level and goes on to consider why such a phenomenon, to the extent that it is true, is morally troubling. In order to provide an ethical perspective on a social and economic problem such as inequality, the book draws on Christian ethics, philosophy, and economics. It considers the relation of inequality to various aspects of life--such as income, health, and education--as well as to questions of race, gender, and nationality., Inequality and Christian Ethics provides a moral and empirical analysis of contemporary social and economic inequality. Drawing on Christian social ethics, political philosophy, and development economics, the book seeks to create an interdisciplinary conversation that illuminates not only the contemporary realities and trends of inequality, but their moral significance as well. It is necessary to examine and understand inequality in various forms - which the book maps out - including disparity in income, education, and health as well as differentials based on race, ethnicity, gender, and nationality. The book draws in particular on the theological ethics of Gustavo Guti�rrez and H. Richard Niebuhr to provide a Christian ethical approach to inequality and well-being. It considers the 'capability approach' set forth by Amartya Sen, Nobel laureate in Economics. Sen's framework helps Christians and other persons to add specificity to what the commitment to 'equality before God' would demand in social and economic relations., Inequality and Christian Ethics, first published in 2000, provides a moral and empirical analysis of contemporary social and economic inequality.
