States of Exile: Visions of Diaspora, Witness, and Return

(Paperback - 2008)
$3.00 - Online Price

Overview

Alain Epp Weaver offers a political theology of exile which understands diaspora and return not as irreducible opposites but as together integral dimensions of the church's witness for the shalom of the city. Through critical conversations with John Howard Yoder, Edward Said, Karl Barth, Daniel Boyarin, and the Palestinian refugee experience, the author explores how the church as a community in exile must learn to be theologically "not in charge." The church cultivates a receptiveness to the inbreaking of God's Spirit from beyond its walls. Book 3 in the Polyglossia Radical Reformation Theologies series.
