Item description for Resist!: Christian Dissent for the 21st Century by Michael Long...
Overview In the face of systemic evil and systems of injustice, a collective call to Christian resistance. Original essays by some of the leading Christian voices of our time issue a spirited call to resist systemic evils in politics, economics, and culture. Beginning with Paula Cooey's reflections on Jesus and his example of prayerful resistance, followed by a review of the history of Christian resistance in America, contributors address such themes as the challenge of empire, racism and the spirit of xenophobia, environmental depredation, and the culture of consumerism and individualism. Balancing these analytic essays are prayers and pastoral responses that call us to open our hearts, to overcome borders, and to gather together in pursuit of peace. Contributors include Bill McKibbin, Larry Rassmussen, Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, Roberto Goizueta, and Dwight Hopkins.
