This podcast doesn’t give all 12 steps, but it does give us at least two steps, and a “serenity prayer” for our particular addiction. In this penultimate episode dealing with Walter Brueggemann’s Out of Babylon I discuss the themes that emerge in the last chapter dealing with accommodation and resistance to empire. Brueggemann is unflinching in his warning to US Christians that they have verged from accommodation, which is sometimes necessary, to capitulation, which is inexcusable and amounts to idolatry and rejection of “local identity” or strong community values.
