Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : November 1, 2006

This week I’ve been digging into research for the new book. The following are a handful of the books that I’ll be re-examining over the next month or two. They give a good indication of the tack I’ll be taking in my book. Please share any books you think I should take a look at. I’m avoiding overly-academic books, because I’m trying to resist my theology-nerd tendencies in my attempt to write a more accessible book than much of what is currently offered.

The Politics of Jesus

Resident Aliens: Life in the Christian Colony

Engaging the Powers: Discernment and Resistance in a World of Domination (The Powers, Vol 3)

Colossians Remixed: Subverting the Empire

Consuming Religion: Christian Faith And Practice in a Consumer Culture

Dissident Discipleship: A Spirituality of Self-Surrender, Love of God, and Love of Neighbor
