520 |a This selection of writings vividly captures the most important moments in the history of Christianity, providing insights into 200 years of Christian theological and political debate. While retaining the original material selected by Henry Bettenson, Chris Maunder has added a substantial section of more recent writings. These illustrate the Second Vatican Council; the theologies of liberation; Church and State from 'Thatcher's Britain' to Communist Eastern Europe; Black, feminist, and ecological theology; ecumenism; and inter-faith dialogue. The emphasis on moral debate in the contemporary churches is reflected in selections discussing questions about homosexuality, divorce, AIDS, and in-vitro fertilization, amongst other issues. Much of the new material, in section XVIII, represents debate on issues with origins in the twentieth century but which, in the new century, has reached heightened levels of urgency and concern, mainly on the global growth of Christianity, global poaverty, the global economic debt, social justice, migration, disability, domestic violence and child abuse, addiction, climate change, tensions between the 'West' and the Middle East, mission in a multi-faith socaiety, mission in a secular society, genetic engineering, the Internet, progress on Christian unity, the unity of the Anglican communion.
