Canadian Churches & Social Justice
edited by John Williams
Offering an understanding of the churches' involvement in social issues, and new insights in matters which are of wide concern to Canadians.
Canadian churches are taking an increasingly active role in a wide range of public issues - nuclear arms, unemployment and the economy, the environment, immigration and relations with the Third World. They often bring a fresh and challenging viewpoint to these subjects, but their involvement is not always welcomed.
In this important book, editor JOHN WILLIAMS has selected key statements from a wide range of church bodies and leaders and provided an insightful introduction to each.
A distinguished economist breaks the silence and explains why most Canadians are stuck — while a few grow rapidly more wealthy$29.95, Hardcover
This book shows how Canada’s steadily increasing wealth — which has mostly gone to the top one per cent over the last 20 years — can be successfully taxed to pay for the social programs Canadians need and want, from pharmacare and child care to better care for the elderly to much lower costs for post-secondary students.$24.95, Paperback
