Book Study: The Powers That Be

Book Study: The Powers That Be

In this political moment of history, Christian theologian Walter Wink offers a lens through which to consider a spiritually grounded, non-violent response to that which pushes our every button.

Beginning Monday March 6, join Pastor Becca Stelle for a six-week study of Walter Wink's "The Powers That Be."

An online review of the book: "In 'The Powers That Be,' theologian and biblical scholar Walter Wink helps us reformulate our ancient concepts - such as God and Satan, angels and demons, principalities and powers - in light of what we now know. Wink's theology is shaped as much by his study of the Bible as by his involvement in the civil rights movement and the fight against apartheid in South Africa. The result is nothing less than a new worldview, one that will help us address the problems of the present and meet the challenges of the future. 'The Powers That Be' is as concerned with salvation as with justice, as relevant for our spiritual selves as for our political lives. Wink closely examines "the Powers, " and by exposing them for what they are in true prophetic fashion, levels a mighty blow against them."
