Powers #0003: Engaging the Powers: Discernment and Resistance in a World of Dominationby Walter Wink
Synopses & Reviews
Final volume in Wink's Powers trilogy. Expanding upon his hypothesis that the "principalities and powers" of the New Testament are the social systems that sustain life and maintain order, Wink says that subversion of the powers resulted in the Domination System--male supremacy, economic oppression, class distinction, and racism--which Jesus intended to replace.
Wink explores the problem of evil today and how it relates to the New Testament concept of Principalities and Powers. He asks the question How can we oppose evil without creating new evils and being made evil ourselves?Winner of the Pax Christi Award, the Academy of Parish Clergy Book of the Year, and the Midwest Book Achievement Award for Best Religious Book.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 325-402) and indexes.
