The 1985 Kairos Document came as a call to discern and rise up against the devastating crises of the South African apartheid. Thirty years later, Christians and faith communities across the world are facing a different, more global, sort of apartheid. This apartheid is caused and characterized by growing social and economic inequalities, environmental devastation, and degradation of human dignity on a global scale. This book is a call to note the contours of these crises and respond with faithful, prophetic resistance for the sake of the common good.
