issues at the Border of Life (PDF)
$15.95
Life at its borders is tenuous and the crossing of borders is no longer as simple as the birth of a new baby or the death of a loved one. Advances in medical science have meant that the border at the start of life can be facilitated through assisted reproductive technology or avoided through abortion. Similarly, at the final border passage can be hastened through euthanasia or delayed by means of palliative care. The stretching of the borders through medical advances gives rise to important ethical and legal questions which cannot be solved with ease. The questions must be answered through careful consideration of the law, community perceptions and ethical imperatives. When does human life begin, and can we determine when and how it should end? What constitutes human personhood? What rights must be afforded the embryo and the foetus, the mother (and father) in each instance, and the person with end-stage dementia or terminal cancer. Can a birth ever be deemed a deficit? Must it always be good to be alive? In this collection of essays, these and many other issues dealing with life at its borders are dealt with by a variety of specialists in the area of medicine, ethics, law and theology. This collection of essays addresses these questions and represents a valuable contribution to a vital and ongoing debate. Learn More

Theology and the Body (PDF)
$15.95
The human body is the primary lens through which we view, encounter and engage the world around us. It is no surprise then to find a wide range of theological reflection upon the human body, from those that affirm the human body as something very good, through to other more negative views where the body is something to be marginalised or escaped from. The body and theology also meet in conversations over body, mind and soul; gender; disability; eschatology; race and culture; sexuality; Christology; and medicine and technology to name but a few. Each of the authors in this volume pick up the theme of embodiment as the lens through which they look at an aspect of theology and body, providing an engaging window onto some of these discussions.

Public Theology in Law and Life (eBOOK/ePUB)
$20.00
Christian theology, properly understood, is always public theology. This volume of essays primarily focuses on the role Christian theology plays in society but a distinctly public enterprise will welcome theological contributions from other perspectives
Christian public theology involves the application of biblical and theological principles outside the confines of the church and assesses their implications for wider society. It examines both the theoretical structures of society (the nature of secularity, government, globalisation, pluralism and so forth) and the myriad specific issues involved in daily life (everything from sport to work-place relations to economics). Public theology is also, very importantly, a discipline that is practiced by the ‘ordinary’ Christian as well as the academic, and it is done in public (with all the scrutiny that entails) and in such a way that it communicates to non-Christians (although it remains a theological endeavour).

World United or a World Exploited? Christian Perspectives on Globalisation (HARDBACK)
$32.95
In this issue of Interface, scholars from the Yarra Institute for Religion and Social Policy within Melbourne’s University of Divinity tackle key aspects of globalisation.

� Stephen Ames examines how religious belief adds a depth of meaning to human wellbeing and personhood, and a moral context for our response to globalisation.
� John D’Arcy May considers how world religions can work collaboratively to enhance human wellbeing. He challenges the ‘secularisation thesis’, noting also the growing influence of Buddhism and Islam.
� Bruce Duncan argues that the Global Financial Crisis is fundamentally a moral one exacerbated by neoliberal economics. To avoid such crises, economic policies must concentrate on promoting social equity and human wellbeing for everyone.
� Rowan Ireland highlights the contradictions in the effects of globalisation in a Brazilian shanty-town, showing how these processes can disempower poorer people, but if well managed can develop resources in local struggles for justice and human rights.
� Robyn Reynolds considers how all religious traditions can manifest the divine in the world and promote the struggle for human wellbeing. Christian mission today involves listening to the poor and marginalised, especially women and indigenous peoples.
� Jim and Therese D’Orsa focus on the role of education in helping develop a framework of meaning to make sense of the world and interpret people’s personal experience.
� Wes Campbell draws from the German theologian, Ernst Troeltsch, to examine the relativising effects on religions and cultures of globalisation.

Editor: Dr Peter Price is Lecturer at Yarra Theological Union, a College of the University of Divinity, and Adjunct Senior Research Fellow (History) of Monash University School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies. Learn More
