The rise of feminism, racial tension, unbalanced wealth and the breakneck progress of science all force us to re-evaluate the meaning of equality in our age. How do we reconcile the seemingly discordant concepts of diversity and equality? In this passionate study, Jane Campbell considers the Christian position, in particular that of the Catholic Church, on the notion of equality between human beings. Focusing on scripture and the writings of various Church leaders throughout the ages, she demonstrates the chasm that has opened between the secular understanding of equality and that of the Christian Church. This thought-provoking examination asks us to rediscover the original concept of equality - that of balance as opposed to sameness - so we might understand the true ramifications of our actions as we head down a perilous ethical path in the twenty-first century.
