Eat, Drink and Be Merry for Tomorrow we Live is a collection of essays by a world authority on Christianity and global ethics. Each essay is intellectually rigorous, but written in non-technical language for the thoughtful reader. They explore a broad range of topics, including: the exhaustion of the Western Christian tradition and its need to 'cross boundaries' if it is to find renewal; why the North should be interested in development; how to respond to highly divergent views about the effects of the global economy; advice to Christian campaigners and demonstrators; differences and similarities between those who set out to reform the global economy and those who reject it wholesale; ways of doing social theology or social ethics; and some of the challenges made by faith traditions in the 'South' to the mainstream development tradition. Michael Taylor not only explores issues that have been neglected from an inter-faith perspective, but also engages with development practitioners and tries to contribute to the ongoing debate as to how poverty reduction and human development should be tackled.
