Item Description...
Repressive authoritarian regimes are falling and fragile new democracies emerging around the globe. How are longstanding conflicts and deep divisions to be healed and enemies reconciled without breeding further injustices? To answer this question, Walter Wink here applies his compelling analysis of "the Powers," as they appear in the New Testament, to the global scene. Surveying the wrenching religious and ethical dilemmas involved in transitions from despotism to democracy, Wink neatly summerizes key concepts from his Fortress Press trilogy on the Powers including sections on 'Jesus against Domination" and "Nonviolence."

Publishers Description
Walter Wink examines the prospects for emerg ing democracies as they make the transition from dictatorshi p to free state. His concern is to find ways of reconciling the deep divisions caused by dictatorship without breeding f urther injustice. '

More About Walter Wink

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! DR. WALTER WINK (1935-2012) was an influential American biblical scholar, theologian, and activist, and was an important figure in progressive Christianity. He was well known for his advocacy of, and work related to, nonviolent resistance. Wink earned his Ph.D. at The Union Theological Seminary where he taught for nine years, and in 2010 was honored with the Unitas Distinguished Alumni Award. He went on to spend much of his career teaching at Auburn Theological Seminary in New York City. Wink wrote more than sixteen books as well as hundreds of scholarly articles, and is recognized for coining the phrase "the myth of redemptive violence." With his wife, June Keener Wink, he held workshops around the world that combined religious-themed pottery, dancing, and Biblical interpretation. Wink died in 2012 from complications of dementia.

Walter Wink currently resides in Sandisfield, in the state of Massachusetts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a brilliant continuation of wink's material on "The Powers"  Apr 19, 2001
This book expounds on Wink's analysis of "Jesus' ethic of nonviolence for today". Specifically dealing with what happens when authoritarian regimes come to an end, and a new "democratic" system emerges. He tackles complex issues such as Domination, Reconciliation, and the role of Apology in the modern political arena. It is a very eloquent and gracious treatment of the subject in a relatively short work (66 pages).
