About-

No Room for Grace addresses a world dominated by free market capitalism, a world where persons become "human resources," the raw materials for competitive production and profitable investment. Barbara Rumscheidt considers how Christians are to do pastoral theology in such a world and explores the potential for Christian faith responses that can resist the dehumanizing dynamics of the global economy.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The present experience of dehumanization generated by the global free market economy challenges the very heart of faith, of theology, and of the mission of the church. No Room for Grace is an excellent book that poses dehumanization as a theological subject with pastoral implications. Barbara Rumscheidt's uniting of theology and economics evokes new insights into the incarnation of grace in our times. A valuable resource."
--Elsa Tamez, Seminario Biblico Latinoamericano, Costa Rica

"For countless victims of free market capitalism the evil of globalization seems inevitable. Rumscheidt, however, powerfully challenges the reality of economic, political, and cultural triage by listening carefully to the voices of those who are excluded (especially in the Third World) and recovers the width of Christian faith. She invites both dehumanized and dehumanizing persons to critical awareness and mutual care, thus creating room for grace. A timely work that will help guide us into the third millennium."
--Willa Boesak, University of the Western Cape, South Africa

"This book reverberates the great prophetic tradition of the Bible. In our faith commitment, global economic justice and universal human dignity cannot be separated. In this unity pastoral words must be publicly spoken. Rumscheidt, protesting the dehumanizing dynamic of the global economy, deepens and expands the ecumenical vision. I recommend this concise and refreshing book with enthusiasm."
--Kosuke Koyama, Union Theological Seminary, New York
