ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTORS
This book provides much for reflection on the complexification of notions of violence. It makes cogent points about the role of growing militarization and how narratives of safety, security, and violence against women are used to support the proliferation of the military industrial complex into many realms of religion and society.
— Neomi De Anda, University of Dayton
This provocative book by, leading cutting-edge transnational and cross-racial Christian feminist/womanist scholars, provides in-depth, critical, and comprehensive analyses of the current US Christian supremacy that fuels militarized white nationalism and US imperial projects. It helps readers connect many invisible dots between police violence, racialized surveillance, anti-black racism, the prison-industrial complex, Islamophobia, and settler colonialism through the lens of militarization and colonialism. A must-read for anyone concerned about the world and justice!
— Boyung Lee, Iliff School of Theology
Grounded in ongoing experiences of colonialist militarism, these engaging essays offer cogent, sophisticated analyses that unpack Christian collusion, both implicit and explicit, in the ongoing project of U.S. imperialism. And, more importantly, they offer liberative theo-political practices committed to resisting endless war and making peace.
