Revelation

ALLEGIANCE: TO WHOM? WHY?

Our Fall 2018 sermon series is from the Book of Revelation.

This fall we are reading through the book of Revelation.
Not as a map about when and how the world will end.
Rather, we will read it as a “prophetic critique of imperial idolatry (civil religion) and injustice (military, economic, political and religious oppression), and specifically Rome’s imperial idolatry and injustice.”
We will explore how in our time we should wrestle with “matters of allegiance, idolatry, violence, witness and worship.”

We are using three books as main resources:

  1. Reading Revelation Responsibly: Uncivil Worship and Witness, Following the Lamb into the New Creation by Michael J. Gorman. Click here to order.
  2. Apocalypse and Allegiance: Worship, Politics and Devotion in the Book of Revelation by J. Nelson Kraybill. Click here to order.
