Special Mid-week Review: SUBVERTING GLOBAL MYTHS (Vinoth Ramachandra)

The 7th anniversary of 9/11 offers us the opportunity to reflect on all the chaos that has ensued.  Toward that end, Halden Doerge has recently reviewed Vinoth Ramachandra’s book Subverting Global Myths: Theology and the Public Issues Shaping Our World(Indeed, many of the “global myths” discussed in this book contributed both to the events of 9/11 and to the US response…)

“… Ramachandra’s book represents the best of Christian social criticism. A profound understanding of Christian theology and the global realities that are shaping our world. Ramachandra is neither an alarmist, an ideologue, or a sectarian. Rather, he is simply a Christian who is willing to do the hard work of engaging in thick description and careful critique of the dangerous myths which shape the current global order. His book should be commended to all of us interested in forming a Christian way of understanding and being in the contemporary world of culture and power. “
