Scandalous Obligation: Rethinking Christian Responsibility


Scandalous Obligation: Rethinking Christian Responsibility Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Responsibility is routinely overlooked, manipulated and oversimplified. In Scandalous Obligation, Eric Severson explores the scope and reach of Christian responsibility and social justice. This book is about the slippery nature of obligation, competing calls for justice, and the perilous temptation to dismiss or avoid responsibility. Severson approaches the question of responsibility using examples from popular culture and provides a stimulating perspective on responsibility that appeals to readers from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds.

This book presses readers to consider the many complications that arise when Christians seek to understand and apply their responsibility for the suffering that abounds in the world. How are Christians to turn this approach to responsibility toward the clouds of injustice and pain that hang over our world today?
