"This collection of reflections has been compiled by the Theology Committee of the Canadian Ecumenical Jubilee Initiative. The contributions are diverse .... But the contributors are united in their commitment to Jubilee concerns for release from debt and other forms of slavery, redistribution of wealth, and rest for the earth, to support for campaigns addressing these issues, and to the renewal of theology and the whole life of the church in this Spirit". -- p. [iv].
