Deliverance from Slavery
Attempting a Biblical Theology in the Service of Liberation
Deliverance from slavery was a central concern of Biblical verse. Boer aims to reclaim this focus for today's struggles.
In this wide-ranging volume, Dick Boer argues that the biblical watchword 'delivery from slavery' offers the key to translating the message of the exodus from slavery into a theory and practice relevant to modern liberation movements. Boer's ambitious volume seeks to update biblical language to today's world while preserving its original theological content.
