Anarchism/Anti-State

Anarchy and the Kingdom of God

This book looks to be an interesting take on Christian Anarchist thought.

From Eschatology to Orthodox Political Theology and Back

Anarchy and the Kingdom of God reclaims the concept of “anarchism” both as a political philosophy and a way of thinking of the sociopolitical sphere from a theological perspective. Through a genuinely theological approach to the issues of power, coercion, and oppression, Davor Džalto advances human freedom—one of the most prominent forces in human history—as a foundational theological principle in Christianity. That principle enables a fresh reexamination of the problems of democracy and justice in the age of global (neoliberal) capitalism.

For the first time in academic literature, the book develops a comprehensive and critical examination of Orthodox political theologies, while constructing a convincing case for an “anarchist” political theologies, while constructing a convincing case for an “anarchist” political theology as the only consistent approach to the sphere of politics from on Orthodox Christian perspective.

Davor Džalto is Professor in the Department of Eastern Christian Studies at Stockholm School of Theology and President of The Institute for the Study of Culture and Christianity. He is most recently the author of In Medias Res and Religion and Realism and editor of Yugoslavia: Peace, War, and Dissolution by Noam Chomsky.Davor Džalto is Professor in the Department of Eastern Christian Studies at Stockholm School of Theology and President of The Institute for the Study of Culture and Christianity.
