An Other Kingdom
An Other Kingdom: Departing the Consumer Culture
By Peter Block, Walter Bruggeman, and John McKnight
The consumer culture holds the belief that no amount is enough. The free-market ideology produces economic crises, violence and an exhausted planet.
An Other Kingdom provides a new narrative—a shift in our thinking and speaking—to take us out of a culture of addictive consumption and into a place where contract is replaced by covenant, consumption is replaced by neighborliness, and time is reclaimed as our own.
This is a modern exodus towards a connected community, built on an alternative set of beliefs, liturgy, and disciplines. The shift has begun and out of it we find a better way to raise our children, be healthy, be safe, and be kinder to the earth.
