This is the fourth volume in the series "God and Globalization", sponsored by the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, N.J. The 3 previous volumes were multi-authored. This volume is authored solely by Max Stackhouse, the general editor of the series, with a Foreword by the distinguished church historian Justo Gonzales. This final interpretive volume argues for a view of Christian theology that, in critical dialogue with other world religions and philosophies, is able to engage the new world situation, play a critical role in reforming the "powers" that are becoming more diverse and autonomous, and generate a social ethic for the 21st century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"God and Globalization represents a notable series and offers an excellent opportunity of Christian theologians and scholars of religion alike to engage in conversation, listen, and respond critically one to another."
"In an age in which globalization is too often just a buzzword for a phenomenon narrowly described in terms of economics and information technology, the God and Globalization trilogy presents serious reflection on the intersection of these with globalization's cultural, religious, and moral dimensions."
"Combining theology, sociology, social theory, and ethics, Stackhouse's 'public theology' offers a very judicious, and generally favorable, evaluation of globalization understood not only in economic or geopolitical terms but with particular attention to cultural dynamics...Globalization and Grace is not light reading, but it is the kind of book that fifty or a hundred years from now, may be celebrated for its prescience." First Things, May 2008, No. 183
"Stackhouse's attempt to show the indebtedness of globalization to Christianity is insightful, and supports his contention that Christianity can help guide it. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." -CHOICE --Sanford Lakoff
"In this important book the author has grasped what the Christian Faith means for globalization and what globalization means for the Christian faith." -Catholic Library World--Sanford Lakoff
"In his treatments of providence and salvation Stackhouse convincingly mines the biblical narrative for its capacity, especially as appropriated by public theology, to guide and morally regulate complex civilizations...I am persuaded that Stackhouse's cosmopolitan view offers more promise than does sectarian withdrawal. I am also convinced that constructive engagement with globalization is required for Christians who wish to remain committed broadly to history, God's creativity and the goodness of the created world." - Stephen Healey, The Christian Century, July 2008--Sanford Lakoff
"Stackhouse's Globalization and Grace significantly contributes to existing literature that examines how theology can help guide and direct the human community in this new era of complex and revolutionary global change. The fourth in a series edited by S. and sponsored by the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, N. J., the volume maps out contours of a Christian public theology that can offer a social ethic capable of renewing communities around the globe and thereby help reform contemporary dominant 'powers.'... S.'s most important contribution is the rereading of central categories of Christian faith, such as creation, providence, and salvation, through the new lens of globalization. The book offers new wineskins of thought capable of holding this new social reality as we become increasingly more conscious of our interconnectedness and interdependence." -Daniel G. Groody, C.S.C., Theological Studies, March 2009
