Cynthia Moe-Lobeda, associate professor of theology and religious studies, has received a faculty fellowship from the Association of Theological Studies Lilly Theological Research Grants program. The fellowship supports Moe-Lobeda’s work on a book, Christian Ethics for the “Uncreators”: Morality in the Face of Systemic Evil.

The book responds to a central moral problem facing middle and upper strata U.S. Christians today—complacency in the face of global economic arrangements that produce relative wealth for Americans while also threatening Earth’s life-systems and endangering people impoverished by those economic arrangements and by the political and military forces accompanying them.
