Overview

Resistance and Theological Ethics by Robert L. Stivers

In this collection of 19 essays, contributors explore the Christian theology behind the faith's tradition of nonviolent resistance to social injustice, militarism, and other instances of inhumanity. They describe current issues, such as globalization, environmentalism, military neo-imperialism, the potential hazards of bio-technology and how Christian nonviolent resistance applies to each. They examine the biblical and historical roots of resistance against social forces, such as the subversive nature of Jesus in Luke, the tradition of witnessing, and St. Augustine's thought on citizenship. Finally, they examine the theological ethics of resistance, including the sovereignty of God over social forces, resisting malpraxis in religion, and specific instances of resistance in Hellman, Bonhoeffer, and Tillich. Each essay's notes serve as its bibliography. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
