Books Info:

Doing Christian Ethics from the Margins free pdf Updating and expanding a popular classroom text, Miguel A De La Torre opens Christian ethics to the rich diversity found among those who are often excluded from academic and Eurocentric ethical considerations. This is not an attempt to make students aware of some quaint or exotic perspectives particular to the disenfranchised. Rather, this book seeks to help students realise that because the gospel message itself was proclaimed to the marginalised peoples of Judea, the people who occupy the same disenfranchised spaces in our contemporary cultures are the ones who hold the interpretive key to understanding that gospel message. The blinding effects of power and privilege (institutional or not) can be overcome by a justice-based ethics that avails itself of the perspectives and experiences of those on the margins.
