Development and Globalization as Challenges – A Christian Perspective


  • Ligia-Mariana MĂCELARU Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad, Romania


The purpose of this paper is to discuss development and globalization and the challenge they pose when consumerism and endless economic growth are thoroughly pursued as economic doctrine. Issues such as social justice and poverty are also addressed, as well as the role of faith communities in providing alternative models that affirm life, justice, and right relationships. It is argued that faith communities ought to be communities that live out such alternatives.
