Market and Margins

Lutheran Perspectives

Wanda Deifelt, editor

No generation before ours has witnessed as much social and economic inequality, with a widening gap between those who can afford luxurious life styles and those who barely survive. While a market-based economy allows some to prosper, it also has adverse effects, leaving many at the margins and lacking what they need for subsistence. Can a market economy assure that, through competition, more people will be economic players? Or does a market ruled by the price of commodities lead to the commodification of life itself? Can a global economic order, often guided by greed, be transformed to provide sustainable livelihood for all?

These questions, among others, were the focus of the 2013 Consultation of Teaching Theologians, organized by the ELCA/ELCIC Association of Teaching Theologians. The consultation was held from August 5-7, 2013, at the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina.

The Association of Teaching Theologians is a community of theologians engaged in a ministry of teaching in the classroom, in the church, and in the world at large. The purpose of the association is to help the teaching theologians of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada to better understand, affirm, and carry out their vocation as teachers of the church.
