Out of Babylon

Full Product Description

It was the center of learning, commerce, wealth, and religion. Devoted to materialism, extravagance, luxury, and the pursuit of sensual pleasure, it was a privileged society. But, there was also injustice, poverty, andoppression. It was the great and ancient Babylon the center of the universe. And now wefind Babylon redux today in Western society. Consumer capitalism, a never-ending cycle of working and buying, a sea of choices produced with little regard to life or resources, societal violence, marginalized and excluded people, a world headed toward climactic calamity. Where are the prophets the Jeremiahs to lead the way out of the gated communities of overindulgence, the high rises of environmental disaster, and the darkness at the core of an apostate consumer society? Walter Brueggemann ascholar, a preacher, a prophetic voice in our own time challenges us again to examine our culture, turn from the idols of abundance and abuse, and turn to lives of meaning and substance.
