Product Description

Smith-Christopher analyzes the theological significance of the Babylonian exile by taking the Hebrew texts seriously as authentic witnesses to Israel's experience of exile. In doing so, he seeks to move toward the construction of a "diasporic Christian theology," which ascribes a more important role to the theme of exile in Christian theology.

Publisher's Description

The Christian church continues to seek ethical and spiritual models from the period of Israel's monarchy and has avoided the gravity of the Babylonian exile. Against this tradition, the author argues that the period of focus for the canonical construction of biblical thought is precisely the exile. Here the voices of dissent arose and articulated words of truth in the context of failed power.
