Product Description

* Our nation was built on enterprise, industry, optimism, idealism, and hope. But is the American dream dying? Analyzing the dark side, Thomas evaluates the roots of our common vision, offers reasons for its decline, and provides solutions to reclaim it through Jesus' model of God's kingdom and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s idea of the "Beloved Community." 240 pages, softcover from Abingdon.

Publisher's Description

The promise of America has always been creative potential: enterprise, industry, optimism, idealism, and hope. This promise, known since the beginning of the New World and named since the Great Depression as the “American Dream”, is what makes immigrants cry at the base of the Statue of Liberty. But there is a dark side to the American Dream, too—one that we don’t talk about much in polite company. A side characterized by the exploitation and domination of subjugated people.
The national climate has caused many to question the validity of the American Dream, and whether it even offers a viable vision for the nation. There are few greater questions to ask. Our collective future depends on a common vision. If the American Dream is dead, then what happens next?

This book evaluates the American Dream, establishes its roots, gives reasons for its decline, and offers solutions to reclaim the promise of the American Dream that is more aligned with Jesus’ vision of the kingdom of God and Martin Luther King Jr’ s vision of the “Beloved Community”. Our challenge is to develop a redesigned American Dream, a sustainable future for all, free from exploitation and domination of subjugated people.
