Epp Weaver envisions the Christian church as a community in exile which must learn to be theologically "not in charge." The church in exile, he argues, must cultivate a receptiveness to the inbreaking of God's Spirit from beyond its walls.

"Alain Epp Weaver interweaves on the ground of Middle East experience with astute theological and political analysis. He shows both Christians and Jews how diaspora and exile can be transformed into a witness befitting their respective religious traditions, and strong enough to neutralize the manifold ways partisans of each distort those same traditions. A demanding yet liberating read for all!" -David Burrell, C.S.C., University of Notre Dame
