Abstract:
The coexistence and mutual influence of politics and the economy is an everyday reality in modern societies. A Christian perspective on this relationship speaks to the inseparability of ethics and economy, and also to the necessity of dialogue between theology and politics. Engagement in these issues is an important public role and responsibility for churches and Christian theology. The public role of religion in Europe in this current context includes highlighting the core values of Christianity. Of special import in this regard are justice and freedom, how they are exercised in life, and a focus on other values that have undergirded the European project since its beginning. This text turns its attention to a robust theological discussion of these ideas and the challenges facing the flourishing of these values in Europe. It is a unique ecumenical, European contribution to the wider discussion on the complex intersection of theology, ethics, politics, and the economy.

Abstract:
The title of the book promises ‘welfare for all'. Of course, that does not mean luxury for all. No, that would be an endless waste that cannot be in anyone's interest. What is meant is something realistic, namely a reasonably fair participation of all people in the infinite and indescribable wealth of our God-given world. Each person, without exception, can be empowered as a human being to lead a self-determined, decent life, ‘prospering to freedom'. The basic idea is simple: the more people there are on earth, the more capable humanity is to make meaningful contributions to a meaningful whole. Motivated human resources are available on a massive scale.
