Beyond Political Pietism and Christian Quietism

“A creative and important on the meaning of reconciliation that all Christians should read.” – James H. Cone, author, The Cross and the Lynching Tree

Everyone supports “reconciliation” But too often calls for reconciliation fall short of uprooting injustice, and thus fail to accomplish the work required. Such initiatives usually favor the rice and powerful while depriving the powerless of justice and dignity. The result, according to Allan Boesak and Curtiss DeYoung, is “political pietism.” And when Christians refuse to name this situation for what it is, they are practicing a form of  “Christian quietism.”

“Explores the deep Biblical meaning of reconciliation in societies that have been rent by social injustice. Boesak and DeYoung argue that reconciliation must transform that deep roots of injustice in such societies; otherwise it will remain superficial and hypocritical. This book is an important reflection on the South African truth and reconciliation process, with a key Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.” – Rosemary Radford Ruether, Pacific School of Religion
