God Is Subversive

Peacemaking in a Time of Empire
  • By Lee Griffith
In God is Subversive Lee Griffiths puts forward a biblical but decidedly unorthodox argument in favor of extreme and uncompromising non-violence. Peacemaking, says Griffiths, is about far more than voting for left-leaning candidates or jet-setting to peace rallies: it is the daily practice of community formation, lifestyle decisions, and prayer; ordinary living that is faithful to the gospel and guided by narratives happily out of sync with most of the world most of the time. - Advocates radical positions including prison abolition and pacifist resistance to all wars - Demonstrates how patriotism functions as a religion one not easily compatible with faith in the crucified and resurrected Christ Describes encounters with a range of colorful characters: dumpster divers and prostitutes, a man convicted of murder and a secretary who worked in the Pentagon, bag-ladies and judges, people who hear voices and see ghosts and, above all, the subversive and even heretical God of the gospel.
