Item description for Set Them Free: The Other Side of Exodus by Laurel Dykstra...

Overview
Set Them Free is an innovative exploration of the Exodus story to provide a fresh outlook that will open our eyes to injustice in today's world. It focuses on the privileged nature of the Egyptian empire rather than the liberation of the Israelites. The text teaches us to examine how our taken-for-granted privileges can unintentionally or unwittingly harm and oppress others.

Publishers Description
This innovative exploration of the Exodus story focuses on the privileged and oppressive nature of the Egyptian empire rather than the liberation of the Israelites. In today's world, where more than half of the people go to bed hungry each night and many lack basic shelter, first-world Christians may be more like members of the ruling elite of Egypt than the Hebrew slaves with whom they usually identify. We need to examine how our taken-for-granted privileges can unintentionally or unwittingly harm and oppress others.

The first part reviews the Exodus story, showing how its principle themes have been used and critiqued by liberation theologians. In the second part, Dykstra continues to tell the Exodus story by focusing on particular people and themes. Pharaoh, his daughter, and others such as the Egyptian midwives show us how to and how not to pattern our lives. They show us how, as privileged dwellers in the first world, we Christians need to distance ourselves from the trappings of empire and, with determination, become liberators rather than oppressors.
