Reviewed: God's People and the Seduction of Empire

A “compelling read” with “thought-provoking narrative

A glowing review of God’s People and the Seduction of Empire by Graham Turner has been published in Faith in Business Quarterly, a journal dedicated to relating Christian faith and values to the business world.

Instead of seeing the decline of church congregations in the developed world as the death throws of Christendom, Turner sees this as just one of the many casualties of empire-building in a social climate where individual identity personal ambition and self-serving concentration of power hold sway with the ever widening gap between the have and have-nots.

In a “thoroughly readable and thought-provoking narrative” with “useful material for group work”, Turner offers the “counter-intuitive values of God’s kingdom described by Jesus” and concludes that:

…following God’s way and working together in the solitarity of fellowship to resist the Seduction of Empire, God’s people can find wholeness, freedom and fulfilment, despite the cost in worldly terms.

The full review can be read in the most recent print edition of Faith in Business Quarterly (vol. 18:2 pp. 28-29).
