What does the New Testament have to say about the attitude of Christians and the church toward those who exercise political authority? Few topics have caused more controversy in the history of the church than the relationship between church and state-from the first century to the present. Pilgrim offers an analysis of the various attitudes of New Testament writers on this difficult subject, ranging from submission to overt resistance by the church. The volume also excursus on "Church and State in Luke-Acts" and a concluding chapter on hermeneutics.Table of ContentsChapter 1--Introduction: A Perennial DebateChapter 2--Ethic of Obedience: The Case of PartnershipChapter 3--Between Obedience and Resistance: The Uneasy PartnershipChapter 4--Ethic of Resistance: The Case for OppositionChapter 5--From the New Testament to the Present
