I mentioned a while back a class open to the public at Union Theological Seminary that addressed the current economic social crisis. My alma mater has made the lectures available for download online from iTunes U.
Just recently, Gary Dorrien gave a great lecture as part of the class. While a very strong theologian and ethicist, Dorrien is also impressively aware of history, the economy, politics, and a number of other disciplines. I was very impressed by him when I was at Union. In my estimation, if theology is rightly going to work towards justice and talk about the economic crisis, Dorrien must play large in the discussion. So give him a listen.
