Rebecca Todd Peters argues for an ethic of solidarity as a new model for how people of faith in the first world can live with integrity in the midst of global injustice and how we can shape our lives in ways that move us toward a more just future. Solidarity Ethics seeks to address concretely the economic and social structures that undergird the globalized context of the contemporary era and the problems brought to light within those 'vanishing' boundaries. Seeing religious communities as the primary source for moral and social education, Peters argues for a concrete ethics rooted in the Christian tradition of justice and transformation generative of deep patterns of solidarity and relationality. Utilizing these theologically rich resources, a substantive ethics of relational reflection, action, and construction is provided as an avenue for building viable strategies for social transformation.

"With meticulous scholarship about economics and Christian ethics offered in easily accessible language, Rebecca Todd Peters has crafted a tour de force account of solidarity ethics. This is a resource teeming with insights for U.S. Christian audiences willing to honestly grapple with what it means to build justice-oriented global relationships in the face of the many structural inequalities and entrenched forms of U.S. imperialism that divide us."
