The Glory of God and the Global Common Good: Solidarity in a Turbulent World
August 1, 2017
David Hollenbach's central premise is that promoting the common good and giving greater glory to God are deeply interconnected. In Part I he argues that the turbulence of the global scene today calls for a strengthened commitment to the common good both locally and globally. Part II treats some ethical requirements of the common good that are especially relevant today. Part III is more theological. With the help of Ignatius Loyola, it suggests that Christians are called to work for “the glory of God and the common good." This print version of David Hollenbach's presidential address at the Catholic Theological Society of America's 2017 convention was published in volume 72 of the Proceedings of the Catholic Theological Society of America.
