Political Trauma and Healing

Political Trauma and Healing

Mark G Brett

$39.99

Paperback
:
How can Scripture address some of the most important justice issues of our time? In Political Trauma and Healing Mark Brett offers a careful reading of biblical texts that speak to some of our most pressing public issues - the legacies of colonialism, the demands of asylum seekers, the challenges of climate change, and the shaping of redemptive economies.

Brett argues that the Hebrew Bible can be read as a series of reflections on political trauma and healing - the long saga of a succession of ancient empires violently asserting their own forms of sovereignty over ancient Israel, and of the Israelites forced to live out new pathways toward restoration. Brett helps recover the prophetic voice of Scripture in these texts and applies them to the contemporary world, addressing current justice issues in a relevant, constructive, and compelling manner.
