Chapter: Chapter 11 A COMMON THEOLOGY OF TRUSTEESHIP

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.19307

Blurb:

We now come to the third part of this work, the part which seeks to connect the theory and data of the previous chapters in order to provide a viable theological foundation for Muslims and Christians to re-envision their joint God-given caliphate and carry it out more faithfully on this planet. I seek to go further than before, both in the on-going Muslim– Christian conversation about hermeneutics and a theology of humanity, and in the practical business of making this earth more of a community. This will involve a struggle for greater justice for the poor and margina- lized and the promotion of a culture of peace and conA╠Çict resolution, often in direct confrontation with the seemingly ubiquitous tentacles of the global capitalist matrix.
