Faith Based Complicity in Social Harm (Part 2 of 3)

Faith Based Complicity in Social Harm (Part 3 of 3)

“Are we building systems that give life to those who marginalized and vulnerable or are we engaging in political activity that has our religious community’s approval but is actually deeply destructive?”

Recommended Reading for October

Jesus and Empire: The Kingdom of God and the New World Disorder

by Richard A. Horsley

Building on his earlier studies of Jesus, Galilee, and the social upheavals in Roman Palestine, Horsley focuses his attention on how Jesus’ proclamation of the kingdom of God relates to Roman and Herodian power politics. In addition he examines how modern ideologies relate to Jesus’ proclamation.

One of RHM’s favorites for 2022!
