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.
