Daniel as an Americanized Apocalypse

Set in the context of Judean resistance against the Seleucid Empire, Daniel addresses issues such as diaspora, identity, empire, and power. The first biblical apocalypse models how to survive faithfully within a hostile foreign culture, and it voices a full-throated rejection of foreign domination. In contrast, American religious media domesticate Daniel into a morality tale, a fable that promotes personal integrity and trust in God. The Americanized Daniel cannot or will not ask what “empire” means or what it means for believers to inhabit an empire themselves. This essay explores what modern readers can gain by reintroducing categories like “empire” and “resistance” in Daniel.

Give it a read, for free (but I don’t know for how long) – here.

In a Forthcoming Essay Tilling Notes of Wright…

Wright claims that withdrawal from these larger narratives held “a good deal of mid-twentieth-century … monster daddy to daddy.

Stunning!

[NB- Tilling uses voice recognition software and his little boy paid him a visit whilst it was still on.  Still, that’s the most intelligent Wright has ever sounded].
