Item description for When the Powers Fall: Reconciliation in the Healing of Nations by Walter Wink...

Repressive authoritarian regimes are falling and fragile new democracies emerging around the globe. How are longstanding conflicts and deep divisions to be healed and enemies reconciled without breeding further injustices? To answer this question, Walter Wink here applies his compelling analysis of "the Powers," as they appear in the New Testament, to the global scene. Surveying the wrenching religious and ethical dilemmas involved in transitions from despotism to democracy, Wink neatly summerizes key concepts from his Fortress Press trilogy on the Powers including sections on 'Jesus against Domination" and "Nonviolence."

Reviews - What do customers think about When the Powers Fall: Reconciliation in the Healing of Nations?

a brilliant continuation of wink's material on "The Powers"  Apr 19, 2001
This book expounds on Wink's analysis of "Jesus' ethic of nonviolence for today". Specifically dealing with what happens when authoritarian regimes come to an end, and a new "democratic" system emerges. He tackles complex issues such as Domination, Reconciliation, and the role of Apology in the modern political arena. It is a very eloquent and gracious treatment of the subject in a relatively short work (66 pages).
