Format: Hardcover
Nobody else has written a book like this. Eve Poole provides a comprehensive survey both of General Synod debates on economic issues and Anglican theologians' writings on capitalism during the twenty years from the fall of the Berlin wall to the onset of the global financial crisis. Astute and well nuanced, she pus forward an interesting taxonomy of different types of theology and then identifies six different ways in which the Church of England could do better. Her thoughts on methodoligical etiquette and flexing mood are particularly instructive. Eve is one of the bright young stars on the faith and business firmament in the UK.

Format: Hardcover
Eve Poole's book is a splendid and readable survey of the reaction of the Church of England - or lack of it - to the current economic situation. She charts the history of 'official' pronouncements from General Synod and other bodies, and also surveys individuals (bishops, theologians, business people, etc)whose thinking is important. She identifies the different strands of theological thinking that are or should be present in any informed debate.

This is a very fine example of the bringing of intelligent theological reflection to bear on an issue of great contemporary importance. My only reservation concerns the cost of the book, which may put off readers from purchasing what is a very timely work.

Format: Hardcover
Poole does a robust job of providing a critique and repair of General Synod's intellectual engagement with economic globalism. Her taxonomies, once identified through a thoroughgoing evaluation of theological typologies, add extra layers of critique and insight so that CoE's Synod may be able to use their faith-thinking with regards the global market to greater effect in the future. Poole writes beautifully and has a tight focus so as to get where she needs to go.

Format: Hardcover
A fascinating and scholarly account of the Church of England's evolving attitude to capitalism, ethical investment and globalisation - with some thoughtful analysis of the gaps in policy and how they might be filled. Should be required reading at every theological college.
