This collection of original essays by some of the leading Christian voices of our time issues a spirited call to resist systemic evils in the realm of politics, economic, and culture. Beginning with Paula Cooey's reflections on Jesus and his example of prayerful resistance, followed by a review of the history of Christian resistance in America, contributors address such themes as the challenge of empire, racism and the spirit of xenophonia, environmental depredation, and the culture of consumerism and individualism. Essays by such figures as Bill McKibbin, Larry Rassmussen, Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, Roberto Goizueta, and Dwight Hopkins, balance their critiques with reflections on the type of community we need to build. Further balancing these analytic essays are prayers and pastoral responses that call us to open our hearts, to overcome borders, and to gather together in pursuit of peace.
