I’ve just finished reading Faith at Work: A short history of the birth and early life of Oasis by Graham Mungeam.  The book was an informative read, exploring much of Steve Chalke’s original vision, their work within education, the homeless, and a lot of the issues around growth and structure as an organisation.  I found at a number of points, as with any history book, it was clearly coming from the author’s view point, and that some of my perspective, obviously from outside the organisation had a different sense of what was happening.  If you’ve had a link to Oasis or are interested in it’s work then this will give you some good detailed history.

  1. Here are sentences 5 to 7 from page 123 of Traditions of International Ethics (Nardin and Mapel)

    “Thus, for example, consequentialists and adherents of common morality agree that when many in the third world face imminent starvation relatively wealthy people in richer parts of the world have a serious moral obligation to come to their aid.

    This general duty to help other is the most basic ground within common morality for interference in the internal affairs of one nation by outsiders, including other nations and international bodies. The specific implications of the general duty to provide help depend on a number of highly contigent factors, including respect for a nation’s sovereignty and awareness of the limits of outside aid.”
