9780800620387: Christ & Empire: From Paul to Postcolonial Times

Although we loathe admitting it, Christians have often, through crusade, conquest, and commerce, used the name and power of Christ to promote and justify political, economic, and even military gain. 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.

About the Author:

Joerg Rieger is Professor of Systematic Theology at Perkins School of Theology, Dallas, USA. He is the author of God and the Excluded and editor of Liberating the Future.

Review:

"In this stunning book, Joerg Rieger reveals the hidden grammar of Christology by elucidating how theological depictions of Christ have been laden with colonial biases. Yet he also shows that the Christ symbol cannot be simply domesticated and offers resources to construct a hope-filled Christology to address the empires of our day."
