Abstract:
La domanda principale che la cooperazione deve porsi è sapere ciò che, in ogni azione, può aumentare o diminuire il potere delle persone e delle comunità e a quale gruppo sociale la cooperazione apporta più giustizia, più diritti, più libertà. È necessario per questo partire da un approccio basato sui diritti dell'uomo il cui obiettivo è quello di aumentare le capacità delle persone che rendono effettivo l'esercizio delle libertà e responsabilità. Il rispetto dei diritti definisce un insieme di regole di comportamento che i governi devono osservare per permettere alle persone di vivere in dignità e in libertà.

Abstract:
当今全球性的信仰与伦理、道德缺失,虽然已经成为人们的普遍共识,但相较于生态环境问题,还远没有引起足够的关注和建设性投入,物质空前丰富与精神相对匮乏的不平衡已经成为当代社会不得不解决的基础性问题。本书揭示了信仰与价值观危机、伦理与道德危机是一切社会危机的根源。企业和企业家是当代经济社会的主体和领导力量,然而企业家这一团体的价值观现状恰恰是最不容乐观的。本书用一个崭新的视角回答信仰在企业家和企业的效用,找寻企业家信仰与企业绩效之间的联系,发掘企业家价值观与价值创造的内在联系,并总结了有爱的企业家类型。这本书可为构建有爱的企业家价值观提供有益借鉴。

Abstract:
This piece of work focuses on the role of the church in sustainable development. The church is a major player because of the big numbers that constitute her institution. She has an everyday opportunity, and over binding responsibility to fulfill her ministry mandate. The church is one of the front line players in development, and her place is vital because she is supposed to engage a holistic role in development, more than any other player does. The author looks at development from a divine perspective, and expects all developers, to integrate the biblical teaching so that it can make meaning theologically and ecologically to sustain holistic development.
