Thoughts on Nonviolence, Empire and Kingdom

I'd been engaged in an ongoing dialogue (follow the link through to  here as well) about the topic of nonviolence and all that seemed to especially prepare me for Rob Bell's series (starting here) on The Way of the Peacemaker.

I also found Rob Bell's reanalysis of the Matthew 5 passage on turning the cheek/giving the cloak/going the second mile to be fascinating and exciting - especially along with lines of N. T. Wright's recent scholarship on the idea of Kingdom and Empire. More to come, I think on that.
