Published on 01 Jan 2001

This book makes a significant contribution to the contemporary debate about equality and argues that Christian notions of equality are still challengingly relevant in today’s world and in contemporary discussion.

A central place is afforded to issues of public policy and economic relationships, since in the author’s view a decent community should affirm and demonstrate a commitment to justice in the way it is structured and in its dealings with its members, particularly the poor, the vulnerable and the excluded.

Duncan Forrester’s book is essential reading on a disturbing topic which most of us acknowledge but with which few of us know how to deal.
