7/10/07: God and Empire

John Dominic Crossan

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The lessons of non-violence and social justice attributed to Jesus Christ were born in the context of Roman hegemony. They were aimed at ordinary people, powerless against a great empire. In his most recent book, New Testament scholar John Dominic Crossan poses a critical ethical question for today's lone superpower: Is the United States the new Rome? Crossan talks to Doug about the parallels he sees, and about winning peace not through military victory, but through equal treatment of all people.
