The Recession and God: Reading the Signs of the Times

Gerry O’Hanlon, SJ
60 pages

Gerry O’Hanlon SJ of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice has just completed his new book, The Recession and God: Reading the Signs of the Times. This book provides a different account of the current recession in Ireland and world-wide.

Gerry draws on the rich resources of the Christian tradition to argue for the need for a new, more socially responsible, economic paradigm. He proposes a vision of the common good, inspired by the values of justice and solidarity, which rules out any simple return to ‘business as usual’. Instead he urges that we use this time of crisis as an opportunity to pool our resources (both secular and religious) in committing ourselves to the search for a more sustainable future.
