Interfaith Theological Symposium on Economic Justice Student Papers
A note on this publication:
Recently, IWJ invited theological students from different faith traditions to answer the following question: what within your faith tradition inspires a commitment to worker justice? This collection of papers contains submissions from students across the country in response to this question. These papers are published in conjunction with the Interfaith Theological Symposium on Economic Justice, which was held before the 15th Anniversary IWJ Conference in June, 2011.
