Editorial Reviews


''A remarkable book of contextual biblical studies . . . Dykstra's subject is the story of Exodus, not as told by the slaves, but from the perspective of the Egyptian empire. There she finds a haunting mirror of North American culture, of its oppression, self-aggrandizement, and brutal racism. The result is a splendid work of public theology.''
--Kathleen M. O'Connor, Columbia Theological Seminary

''The late Robert McAfee Brown used to worry about how we North American Christians, with our vantage point from 'within Pharaoh's household,' might legitimately respond to Third World liberation theology's appropriation of the Exodus story. Now from the heart of the Catholic Worker movement comes just such a reading, and it is fresh, literate, and deeply engaged. A sophisticated and compelling project.''
--Ched Myers, author, Binding the Strong Man

''Prophetic, critical, and passionate. Never before has there been a volume that offers such a profound critical theological and social reflection on a biblical text, the world that shaped it, and the contemporary community who now reads it . . . This book is one of the best that I have read in a long, long time.''
--Carol Dempsey, editor, Theology and Sacred Scripture --Wipf and Stock Publishers --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
