This is a profound and eloquent discussion of the power and the responsibility of the community of God's people to do justice, to resist state violence, to obey human rights laws when states violate these laws. He expresses the church's prophetic role as a voice for the oppressed and against injustice. While the context lies in the 1980s, in the US sanctuary movement to protect the human rights of Central American refugees from the brutal violence of their governments and the ruthless deportations of the US government, the discussion of the faith community's power and responsibility is always current.
