In God is Subversive Lee Griffiths puts forward a biblical but decidedly unorthodox argument in favor of extreme and uncompromising non-violence. Peacemaking, says Griffiths, is about far more than voting for left-leaning candidates or jet-setting to peace rallies: it is the daily practice of community formation, lifestyle decisions, and prayer; ordinary living that is faithful to the gospel and guided by narratives happily out of sync with most of the world most of the time. Advocates radical positions including prison abolition and pacifist resistance to all wars Demonstrates how patriotism functions as a religion one not easily compatible with faith in the crucified and resurrected Christ Describes encounters with a range of colorful characters: dumpster divers and prostitutes, a man convicted of murder and a secretary who worked in the Pentagon, bag-ladies and judges, people who hear voices and see ghosts and, above all, the subversive and even heretical God of the gospel.
