Repressive authoritarian regimes are falling and fragile new democracies emerging around the globe. How are longstanding conflicts and deep divisions to be healed and enemies reconciled without breeding further injustices? To answer this question, Walter Wink here applies his compelling analysis of "the Powers," as they appear in the New Testament, to the global scene. Surveying the wrenching religious and ethical dilemmas involved in transitions from despotism to democracy, Wink neatly summerizes key concepts from his Fortress Press trilogy on the Powers including sections on 'Jesus against Domination" and "Nonviolence."
A visionary new work that demonstrates the power, promise, and practicality of Jesus' ethic of nonviolence. A timely book in a world where repressive regimes are falling and fragile, new democracies are born from their ashes.
