Faith and Political Harm (Part 2 of 3)

“As peasants who could not imagine a world without feudalism. As we find it difficult to imagine a world without capitalism. In this story, listeners could not imagine a world without Roman imperial rule.”

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!
