Public Theology and Changing Social Values

Studies in Christian Ethics 17 (2):118-133 (2004)

Judith Sweeney
Ryerson University
On the basis of interviews conducted in Bradford, Glasgow and Rotterdam, this article seeks to explore the issue of changing social values as they are affected by or affect the capacity (or incapacity) to participate in community and/or political life. The issue explored is in the context of globalisation and its impact on the communities in question. The aim is to offer some empirical basis for a theological reflection upon the nature and scope of value change and the opportunities and challenges thus posed for publicly engaged Christians
