  • Mission today and the uninvited guest

    Mission today and the uninvited guest
    Mission today must be seen in the context of the relationship between church and society and include the church’s response to global and local crises that impact the lives of people worldwide. Mission must be viewed against the background of an ideology which argues that the global market will save the world through unlimited growth. This is a pernicious myth that threatens not only social but spiritual life, and not only humanity but also the whole of creation. By: Karin Achtelstetter

  • Changing religious landscapes and political communication in Latin America

    Changing religious landscapes and political communication in Latin America

    Growing up in a middle-class Evangelical home in the United States, I learned to take religious belief and practice very seriously.

  • Comunicación mundial: ¿Adiós al espacio y el tiempo?

    Comunicación mundial: ¿Adiós al espacio y el tiempo?
    “Comunicación mundial significa: liberar el espacio para atar el tiempo,” afirma Norbert Bolz en su libro Comunicación Mundial.1 Está convencido de que esta nueva situación a nivel global ha pulverizado dos elementos básicos de la vida social: el espacio y el tiempo. Es lo que Anthony Giddens afirmaba hablando sobre la globalización: “no tiene que ver, ni siquiera primariamente, con la interdependencia económica, sino con la transformación del tiempo y el espacio en nuestras vidas.”2 By: Carlos A.

    Myths of radicalization in Britain

    The latest buzz word in the “war against terror” is leading us down a blind alley, argues Jeremy Seabrook. It epitomizes a line of thinking that will do little to stop young people seeking purpose in religious fundamentalism.

  • Gender and peace after 2015

    Gender and peace after 2015

    The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have represented a crucial framework in international development since their establishment in the year 2000. Two of their key strengths have been their ability to articulate complex development challenges in eight clear goals (while, at the same time, offering indicators for their measurement) and that of shifting the public focus on critical global issues.
