“The power and clarity of Dr. Thistlethwaite’s book confronts an anemic church afraid of the words and witness of Jesus Christ. This is a must read for all who want to reclaim the Bible and the Church from poor biblical scholarship and a market driven theology possessed by Wall Street. Read at your own risk. You may accept the call of #occupy the world with love and justice.”
—Rev. Otis Moss III, Senior Pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ
“This book is a must read for Christians struggling to follow Jesus in an era of rampant greed as well as those concerned that America’s economic system is morally bankrupt. The book’s grounding in scripture and theology is a critical tool for anyone trying to counter hypocritical political leaders or Christian right leaders who are leading America astray on economic policies and principles.”
—Rev. Jennifer Butler, Executive Director at Faith in Public Life
“Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite brings the brains of a first rate scholar, the spirit of a pastor and the passion of a prophet to “occupying” the Bible. Her book reveals the immediate relevancy of the sacred scriptures for today’s struggling world and offers a compelling altar call for Christians to live out the mandate for justice inherent within our faith.”
—Rev. Dr. Paul Rauschenbush, Religion Editor at The Huffington Post
"Susan Thistlethwaite uses compelling scholarship to show just how biblically and theologically relevant the Occupy movement was and is. It doesn't matter that the encampments are gone; this book is about us: it is about our calling and our need do a ‘mic check’ on a money-dominated social system that is rapidly losing its way."
—Rev. Peter Laarman, Executive Director at Progressive Christians Uniting
