summary
In Faith-Based Health Justice, scholars mine critical insights into the promotion of health justice across Christian and Islamic faith traditions and beyond. Contributors consider what health justice might mean today, if developed in accordance with faith traditions whose commandment to care for the poor, ill, and marginalized lies at the core of their theology. And what kind of transformation would be needed in the face of the health justice challenges today?
