2018 Justice and the Common Good

Justice and the Common Good

‘Justice’ and ‘common good’ are topics that have received much scholarly attention in the past few decades. On 23 September 2017, the Ethos Institute for Public Christianity in collaboration with seven seminaries organized a conference to reflect on these important issues especially as they relate to Singapore and the region. The papers presented at this conference, which now comprise this volume, address a wide range of issues including immigration, the ecological crisis and the question of human rights from the biblical and theological perspectives. It is hoped that their publication in the Ethos Engagement Series would extend the discussion of these important topics to the wider Christian community.
