Theology for the End of the World

  • By Marika Rose
Product Description

It feels like the world is ending. In the midst of apocalyptic times it's tempting to cling on tightly to what we still have. But what if our desire to save the world is part of the problem?

Theology for the End of the World suggests that in responding to the deeply entwined systems of capitalism, racism and patriarchy we should stop trying to unearth a 'good version' of Christianity which stands opposed to these forms of violence and seek instead to reckon with the role that Christianity has played in making the world we now inhabit. How has Christianity shaped the histories of marriage and the family? How did Christianity invent race and give birth to capitalism? Grappling with the ambivalent inheritance of Christianity, a tradition passed down by enslaved people and enslavers; by violent husbands, resourceful wives and courageous sex workers; by rich people and the dispossessed, the book suggests Christians should give up on trying to redeem the world - a social order founded on violence and exploitation - and seek instead to end it.
