Abstract:
La recrudescence et l'omniprésence de cas de violence dans le monde invite à une réflexion théologique au sujet du problème de la construction de la paix dans un monde violent. Une réponse biblique s'avère indispensable. Le pacifisme caractérisé par la non-violence est un moyen efficace pour aboutir à la paix. Il est cohérent avec le message de l'Évangile et pertinent en ce qui a trait à la contribution que l'Église peut apporter dans son rôle de communauté appelée à construire la paix dans le monde. Ce livre développe la notion du pacifisme à partir de la lecture du passage de Romains 12,12-21.

Abstract:
Market-centric development is not only unjust, inequitable, unsustainable, but also violent. The end of development-aggressive consumption, and the means—aggressive production, trade and accumulation—make development anti-people. The more marketable wealth is produced, the more ill-fare is brought instead of welfare. Financialisation of the economy and neglect of the ecology bring financial and ecological crises. Neglect of non-marketable wealth, like love, caring, sharing, concern for others and social/cultural capital, are the reasons for this malady. Only people-centric development that fosters production of non-marketable wealth along with marketable wealth can promote welfare. In this book, the author, highlights the importance for reducing production of wealth with negative utility, the need to foster spirituality of development, and suggests a few non-market programmes to promote people-centric development.

Abstract:
Contributions on the way to the G-20 2018 within the framework of the 2030 agenda. "High-level dialogue on international financial architecture: ethics and economics". Ecoeconomics and the economy of the global common good, structural inequalities and protection of work, financing of crime and public and private corruption, corporate social responsibility and financing for the development of countries and people. Each of these points has a strong impact on the lives of nations and people. Ethics is often absent in many of the activities that take place in the world and also in our own public policies. Any analysis of the international financial system and its preponderance over the productive sectors, on the implementation of economic models away from the real interests of their recipients, as well as policies that do not meet needs and poverty due to lack of resources, highlights the absence of elements of justice, ethics, to achieve resources necessary to find the indispensable equitable solutions. This multidisciplinary debate wants to be a contribution to this process.

Abstract:
This book focuses on the ethics, governance and performance of the decentralized territorial entities in Bukavu, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). For nearly forty years, the different political regimes have tried to improve the living conditions of their populations through the implementation of decentralization, which allows the leaders of their leaders to be approached in the hope of triggering a large-scale local development process. The author argues that this theme is highly strategic for a "post-conflict" country, which aspires to consolidate political ethics, democracy and good governance.

Abstract:
Les écrivains bibliques ont coutume de recourir au symbolisme pour assurer que la saisie de leur message soit facilitée. En se focalisant en particulier sur le quatrième évangile du Nouveau Testament, l'auteur lève le voile sur le caractère énigmatique de la christologie johannique qui paraît déconcertante pour le lecteur non averti à cause du caractère imagé que revêtent les appellations de Jésus : comme langage parabolique et allégorique, comme métaphore et symbole. Cette étude montre que le symbolisme n'est pas une formulation conceptuelle obscure et incomprise du public, mais au contraire que les théologiens devraient dans leurs discours de chaque jour être en mesure de trouver des formulations symboliques, afin de traduire l'exactitude de la vérité éthique et religieuse à transmettre. Bien compris ce langage est un outil d'enseignement fidèle à la méthode de transmission biblique et un véhicule sémantique d'une efficacité pédagogique inégalée..

Abstract:
The main focus of this work is that, by her vocation, the Church has the mandate and challenge to teach all nations. It is her pastoral and canonical responsibility. School method of Evangelization was the successful tool in the hands of the early Missionaries in Nigeria. But the State forcefully took over Mission schools in 1970. Nationalization of schools and monopoly of control are forms of state-imposed secularism and moral relativism. Forty years after this nationalization of schools, the system of education has virtually collapsed. Just recently, the State started the process of returning mission schools to their various owners.

Abstract:
Las enfermedades tropicales que afectan a poblaciones que viven en condiciones de pobreza han sido desatendidas siempre. En este libro se revisan algunos de los múltiples factores involucrados y se enfatiza que incluso la bioética y los bioeticistas mismos han igualmente desatendido este grave problema. El problema de fondo es que los organismos internacionales, las autoridades responsables de la atención e investigación de la salud, y los organismos financiadores de investigación para la salud no han considerado a estas enfermedades como una prioridad. Además, los abordes que se han aplicado no visualizan el problema de manera integral. En el mundo actual en plena crisis humanitaria, moral y ética, este documento pretende ser una voz que llama a una toma de consciencia social responsable que se interese en "los otros", los sin voz, los marginados, los olvidados y desatendidos. Es una invitación a despertar, reflexionar, y plantear nuevas propuestas para atender a esta población.

Abstract:
The book explores the nature and function of the non-profit incorporated company the Church of South India Trust Association (CSITA) situated in Chennai, South India, and analyses the precarious situation the organisation finds itself in with regard to the financial and property (mis)management. This leads the author to make a major remedial proposal, namely, to lift its corporate veil to expose the true affairs of the company for reproof and restoration. Corporate Governance is defined as referring to the rules, regulations, policies and standards required for sustaining accountability, transparency and general corporate integrity. The aim of the book is to elevate the Church to a strong position with regard to corporate governance, liberating it from corporate failures and from inadequate and improper internal governance mechanism..
