Social Justice Series: Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand

Social Justice Series: Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand is a series of booklets looking at the eradication of poverty. Really helpfual material with NZ examples. I’ve been reading the fifth book in the series “The Digital Divide: Poverty and Wealth in the Information Age” as I think about cyberspirituality.

How does the proclamation of the Kingdom of God, in both word and social action, interact with cyberspace, technoculture and its effects? How should we live in a world where we are, in William Gibson’s words, “wrapped in media”?

The books are really cheap ($2-$4 each) and its worthwhile buying them all. I plan to use them to start discussion questions in class and with house groups etc.
