Mark and Empire
Full Product Description
After an introduction and brief glosses on the structures of imperial power in first-century Palestine and in our contemporary world, Cobb delves into the text of Mark over 16 additional chapters. She parses Marcan passages that might be well-known to the reader with a fresh eye, offering insights into the scriptures and applying those insights to the experience of the contemporary reader. Using her many personal experiences of faith, economic struggle in the face of a globalized consumer culture dictated from the United States, and gender inequality, Cobb asks the reader to address one's own responsibilities as a citizen of the world in need of resistance against imperial power in all its forms.
Mark and Empire by Laurel Cobb was published by Orbis Books in October 2013. The ISBN for Mark and Empire is 9781626980471.
