Mark Lewis Taylor, The Executed God, December 3 – 9

Twenty-five percent of all the people incarcerated in the world are in America’s prisons.  60% of those are people of color.   America is a “carceral state.”  Taking on “Lockdown America” a triad of “police violence, mass incarceration and the death penalty” Mark Lewis Taylor, the Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Theology and Culture at Princeton Theological Seminary, has written a second edition to The Executed God:  The Way of the Cross in Lockdown America.   Taylor finds in the symbol, “The Executed God” a “power in and of the people” to resist the state theatrics of terror with a counter theatrics to terror in three parts: “cultivating adversarial politics, creating dramatic actions, and catalyzing social movements.”
