Description: For Christian communities plagued by grave injustice, the core community ethic to love God with all one's heart and neighbors as oneself may seem inapplicable -- a mere utopian fantasy rather than a practical, passionate morality.

How can communities understand the interrelatedness of all the structures of injustice? How do definitions of justice differ contextually? What specific actions do communities take that promote justice? What actions deny justice altogether? For those who strive to find answers, Eleanor Haney prescribes resistance -- not only by those who have been marginalized by white social power, but by those whose lives are constructed within a context of dominance. Recognizing the limits of her own white feminist perspective, Haney challenges communities to acknowledge the agonizing oppression that they may not only encounter, but perpetuate as well.

A practical theology, "The Great Commandment" begins with a picture of a congregation addressing oppression within itself. By enacting racial, sexual, and economic justice within its community, Haney contends, such a community can become more inclusive in worship and in its social context. Additional chapters set forth an understanding of God in a relational reality, human life in the creation and new creation, and resources for creating a just society.
