The Bible tells the stories of many empires. And many are still considered some of the largest of the ancient and classical world: the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Persians, the Greeks, and finally the Romans. In this provocative book, nine experts bring a critical analysis of these world empires in^the background of the Old and New Testaments. As they explain, the Bible developed against the^context of these empires, providing concrete meaning to the countercultural claims of Jews and^Christians that their God was the true King, the real Emperor. Each chapter describes how to read the^Bible as a reaction to empire and points to how to respond to the biblical message to resist imperial^powers in every age.
^Contributors are Norman K. Gottwald, Walter L. Brueggemann, Jon L. Berquist, John Dominic^Crossan, Richard A. Horsley, Warren Carter, Brigitte Kahl, Neal Elliott, and Greg Carey.
