Christ and Empire

Christ and Empire

Joerg Rieger

$39.99

Paperback
"Through bold historical analysis of Christianity from earliest times, Rieger's ambitious and faith-filled project chips away at the colonial legacy of Christology to find the authentic Christ. The surprising and liberating insight of this book is that despite constant pressure from empire, Christ could never be co-opted altogether. There is something in the reality of Jesus Christ's own peculiar refusal to acquiesce to empire that continues to inspire Christians throughout the ages and even today."--BOOK JACKET.

- Publisher Rieger's ambitious and faith-filled project chips away at the colonial legacy of Christology to find the authentic Christ - or rather the many authentic depictions of Christ in history and theology that survive our self-serving domestications. Against the seeming inevitability of globalized unfairness, Rieger holds up a "stumbling block" that confounds even empire.
