The Fullness of Time in a Flat World: Globalization and the Liturgical Year

The Fullness of Time in a Flat World: Globalization and the Liturgical Year

Scott Waalkes

| Cascade | 2010

Details

Best-selling author Thomas Friedman says that globalization has made the world flat and that we cannot stop the process. But while it is right to say that globalization tends to flatten our world, it is wrong to say that there are no alternatives to current patterns of economic, ecological, political, and cultural integration. This book argues that the Christian liturgical calendar provides a constructive alternative to the globalization of economics, ecologies, politics, and cultures. It does so by incorporating the church into the fullness of time in the gospel narrative, thereby helping us escape from the dead end of Friedman’s flat world so that we can improvise healthier ways of being globally integrated.
