Being the Church in the Midst of Empire

Trinitarian Reflections

Karen L. Bloomquist, editor

Theology in the Life of the Church, vol 1

The church has often been complicit with dynamics of empire. Nonetheless, it also needs to critique and embody alternatives to it, especially in and through communities of faith. Here, theologians take up the daunting challenge of developing constructive theological responses, grounded in the Triune God, that have the potential to counter, transform, and nurture long-term resistance to empire empire mentality and activities.

This book reflects discussions occurring among Christians all over the world as they seek to give public evangelical witness to Jesus Christ in the midst of empire. The call to faithfulness in these pages is filled with insight, struggle, and hope.
–Richard H. Bliese, President, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota. USA

This book stands in the tradition of courageous contextual Lutheran theology, and contributes deep ecclesiological insights into ecumenical processes for nurturing resistance to today’s expressions of totalitarianism.
–Ulrich Duchrow, Kairos Europa, Heidelberg, Germany

Global writers provide vital Lutheran views of the Triune God’s creating, liberating, and empowering actions. Essential reading to understand and to resist the USA’s insatiable quest for domination under the guise of freeing the world. An extraordinarily important book.
-Norma Cook Everist, Professor of Church and Ministry, Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, USA
