Product Description

In this collection of essays, Benson and Heltzel attempt to demonstrate how alternative evangelical traditions can challenge the evangelical politics that have dominated the scene for years, and also to illuminate how effectively some evangelicals have challenged the United States' militaristic power in the recent past. They also seek to emphasize the differences (both ethnic and social) among evangelicals as a point of strength and to perpetuate the dialogue specifically concerning the politics of contemporary Pentecostals. In doing so, it is their desire to show that evangelicalism's theological basis actually requires a politics of liberation, and that evangelical groups have struggled against American militarism as well as for the liberation of ordinary Americans.

Publisher's Description

This groundbreaking collection considers empire from a global perspective, exploring the role of evangelicals in political, social, and economic engagement at a time when empire is alternately denounced and embraced. It brings noted thinkers from a range of evangelical perspectives together to engage the most explosive and discussed theorists of empire in the first decade of the twenty-first century--Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri. Using their work as a springboard, the contributors grapple with the concept of empire and how evangelicalism should operate in the world of empire.

Publisher Description

This groundbreaking collection considers empire from a global perspective, exploring the role of evangelicals in political, social, and economic engagement at a time when empire is alternately denounced and embraced. It brings noted thinkers from a range of theological perspectives together to engage the most explosive and discussed theorists of empire in the first decade of the twenty-first century - Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri.
Literary theorist Hardt and political philosopher Negri, named "innovators to watch" by Time magazine, are coauthors of the provocative book Empire and its sequel, Multitude. In Empire, they argued that nation-states are subordinated to the power of transnational, global capitalism. At the same time, they viewed empire in its very tendency toward de-centering as opening up new, creative possibilities for the "multitude" of ordinary folk to spread and practice democracy. In Multitude, they argued that their basic arguments on empire had not been disproved by 9/11 and its aftermath.
Using Hardt and Negri's work as springboards, the contributors to this volume grapple with what empire is and what evangelicalism is and challenge evangelicalism's identification with right-wing politics. The book includes a foreword by Nicholas Wolterstorff and an afterword by Hardt and Negri.
