Come Out My People: God's Call Out of Empire in the Bible and Beyond
"Howard-Brook undertakes what few dare anymore: an introductory primer for the whole Bible...This book invites disciples to "connect the dots", in order to recover our ancient, anti-imperial identity, and to embrace a radical faith and practice that are personal and politica." - Ched Myers
"Howard-Brook illuminates how ancient empires exercised control and manipulation of people not simply by political and military means, but also through the religion of empire. Throughout he makes clear that the core message of the God of creation is to call people out of empire, to refuse to cooperate with the forces of destruction and domination today." - Richard Horsley
"Will become a classic for communities that seek first to receive the gracious gift of God's alternative future to Empire." - Jarrod McKenna
"If we who sojourn in America are to be a community that can both name and resist the lure of Empire, we need a story more powerful than the story called America. Wes Howard-Brook knows than the Bible tells such a story. May its story be ours as we're set free from our imperial imaginations to dream with our Creator of a new world here and now." - Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove
