Description

This book is addressed to all people of good will who are concerned about what happens to the poor in our Asian societies. Christian Hope is not a self centred hope-it is a hope for the world, for the whole of human family. Christians may find in this volume a help to critically reflect on our societies and above all relate their life and faith with the drams and hopes of the powerless.

The book is also intended to help the Christians forge new relationships with the larger society, and in the process, become self-critical. People of good will and believers of other religious traditions may find in this book the struggles Christianity is undergoing in practicing the concern and love its Founder showed towards the poor and the oppressed in the society.
