The Executed God

Full Product Description

The new edition of Mark Lewis Taylor's award-winning The Executed God is both a searing indictment of the structures of "Lockdown America" and a visionary statement of hope. It is also a call for action to Jesus followers to resist US imperial projects and power. Outlining a "theatrics of state terror," Taylor identifies and analyzes its instruments - mass incarceration, militarized police tactics, surveillance, torture, immigrant repression, and capital punishment - through which a racist and corporatized Lockdown America enforces a global neoliberal economic and political imperialism. Against this, The Executed God proposes a "counter-theatrics to state terror," a declamation of the way of the cross for Jesus followers that unmasks the powers of US state domination and enacts an adversarial politics of resistance, artful dramatic actions, and the building of peoples' movements. Heralded in its first edition, this new edition is thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded, offering a rethinking of what being a Christian is and how Christianity should act to bring about what Taylor terms "a liberating material spirituality" to unseat the state that kills.

The Executed God by Mark Lewis Taylor was published by Fortress Press,U.S. in October 2015. The ISBN for The Executed God is 9781451492675.
