9780836194227: States of Exile: Visions of Diaspora, Witness, and Return (Polyglossia: Radical Reformation Theologies)

Alain Epp Weaver offers a political theology of exile which envisions diaspora and return as both integral dimensions of the church s witness for the shalom of the city. Unlike conventional views, Epp Weaver insists that diaspora and return need not stand in irreducible opposition. He explores these understandings in critical conversations with John Howard Yoder, Edward Said, Karl Barth, and Daniel Boyarin. His views also represent reflection on over a decade of living and working among Palestinian refugees.

Epp Weaver envisions the Christian church as a community in exile which must learn to be theologically not in charge. The church in exile, he argues, must cultivate a receptiveness to the inbreaking of God s Spirit from beyond its walls.

Volume 3 in the Polyglossia: Radical Reformation Theologies series.

Alain Epp Weaver served with Mennonite Central Committee in the Middle East in various capacities for over 11 years, most recently as representative for MCC s Palestine, Jordan, and Iraq programs. He has edited a number of publications, including a recent one with Peter Dula, Borders and Bridges: Mennonite Witness in a Religious Diverse World.

Review:

The theological witness of this book is powerful and moving, challenging and rich. --from the Foreword by Daniel Boyarin

This book is theological politics at its finest driven by robust and specified theological commitments, commitments shaped by life lived in the Middle East, commitments given to political reflection informed by wide and discerning reading. Epp Weaver helps us not only imagine new ways of approaching the violence in too much of the Middle East, but also fresh ways to approach questions of theology nd politics. What a gift! --Mark Thiessen Nation, Eastern Mennonite Seminary
