In this book Johnny Bernard Hill argues that prophetic rage, or righteous anger, is a necessary response to our present culture of imperialism and nihilism. The most powerful way to resist meaninglessness, he says, is refusing to accept the realities of structural injustice, such as poverty, escalating militarism, genocide, and housing discrimination.Hill's Prophetic Rage is interdisciplinary, integrating art, music, and literature with theology. It is constructive, passionate, and provocative. Hill uses multiple sources and approaches, including liberation theology and black religion, to reflect theologically on the nature of liberation, justice, and hope in contemporary culture.This book is the fourth volume of the rapidly emerging Prophetic Christianity series, edited by Bruce Ellis Benson, Malinda Elizabeth Berry, and Peter Goodwin Heltzel.
