New with remainder mark.
On September 20, 2002, approximately one year after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the White House released a document intended to change the course of American history. That document, which outlined plans for a ''new American empire,'' was titled The National Security Strategy for the United States of America. Anxious about Empire, a collection of writings by theologians, biblical scholars, and pastors, offers a biblically-based critique of the United States' foreign policy and national security strategy following the 9/11 attacks. The contributors, including Robert Bellah and Wendell Berry, address issues such as the incompatibility of Christianity and nationalism and the use of scripture in imperial rhetoric. Anxious about Empire will be a valuable resource for pastors, lay groups, and individual Christians striving to discern the church's response in these baffling political times.
