“Jubilee Manifesto arises from over two decades of serious reflection and practical experience. For those wanting to understand the biblical framework and agenda for social reform, there is no better place to start. Based on the work of the influential Jubliee Centre in Cambridge, this book presents an alternative to Capitalism, Socialism and other ideologies. From the outset it identifies relationships as the foundation stone of any society. Ultimately it is the quality of those relationships in families, communities, organizations and between institutions that holds society together and makes life worth living. Through careful study of the Bible, the contributors explore how a relational society approaches nationhood, government, family, welfare, finance, economics, criminal justice and international relations. They then offer insights into the challenges of, and strategies for, Christian social reform.” (Editor’s notes)
