Product description

Review

''In this magnificent finale to this trilogy, Walter Wink engages the Powers with brilliant exergesis and a profoundly creative nonviolence, revealing the way to the Powers' and our own transformation. Wink on the Powers is a classic resource for activist and scholar alike.'' --James W. Douglass, Ground Zero Community

''This book provides an intellectual, historical, and scriptural basis for the truth of Christian nonviolence. It will be an inspiration to many people, and particularly helpful to those who have come into nonviolence intuitively, or through a painful experience.'' --Mairead (Corrigan) Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, Northern Ireland

About the Author

Walter Wink is Professor of Biblical Interpretation Emeritus at Auburn Theological Seminary in New York City. Previously, he was a parish minister and taught at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. In 1989-90 he was a Peace Fellow at the United States Institute of Peace. He and his wife, June Keener Wink, have led workshops they describe as ''aimed at an encounter with the biblical text that will be transformative for the participants'' all over the United States and Canada, as well as in New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, South Korea, East and West Germany, England, Scotland, and Ireland. They have also led workshops on nonviolence in Mexico, Northern Ireland, and South Africa. Walter Wink is author of 'The Human Being: Jesus and the Enigma of the Son of the Man'' (Fortress Press, 2001) and the award-winning Fortress Press books: 'Naming the Powers' (1982), 'Unmasking the Powers' (1986), 'Engaging the Powers' (1992), and 'When the Powers Fall' (1998).
