Book: Earth, Empire and Sacred Text
Chapter: Chapter 11 A COMMON THEOLOGY OF TRUSTEESHIP
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 conÀict resolution, often in direct confrontation with the seemingly ubiquitous tentacles of the global capitalist matrix.
