This book is a critique and commentary on globalisation from a theological perspective. Drawing on the works of theologians such as Augustine, Rahner, Luther, Newbigin, Moe-Lobeda, Mc Fague, Jesnon, Wainwright, de Chardin, Mc Caughey, and Kung, the author critiques globalisation and those who espouse it, defend and promote it. For Gill, globalisation 'is an economic phenomenon with political ramifications whereby economic and political aspects of the world become predicated of the whole world itself. Central to it is a spirit of competition, by which the world is globalised and results in a sense of one globe.' For the author, following Milbank, the response to globalisation needs to be a theological one based on the new city of God; the Kingdom of God. The author is a Minister of the Word in the Uniting Church in Australia who studied theology in Melbourne and undertook post-graduate studies in Boston, USA
