The Bible records a struggle between two worldviews. God opposes one and favors the other. Nearly everyone forgets who God favors. Life abounds with the tragic consequences of our Biblical amnesia.

Abstract:
From the Exodus to the crucifixion the Bible records a struggle between two worldviews: the dominator system and partnership ways. God favors partnership ways, but the dominator system is a formidable opponent. Its agents are often the powerful, the rich and the religious. Indeed, an alliance of such people crucified Jesus. The irony is that we cannot understand the Bible because we read it as if God favors the dominator system! Biblical Amnesia corrects this fatal flaw. In the process, we glimpse alternatives to the ways of life we now painfully life.

  Profoundly thought provoking , 11/12/2004
Reviewer: Kirsten
I am reluctant to write a review only because I feel that nothing I can say will do this book justice. As a former member of Pastor Gustafson's congregation, I looked forward to reading his book. It truly is as thought provoking and moving as I was hoping. If we can understand that our struggle is against the dominator system rather than the all-ambiguous 'evil', we can truly begin to live the life promoted by Jesus Christ (love, tolerance, mercy, compassion, etc rather than the intolerance, hatred, and discrimination promoted by so many *Christian* churches).

I only hope and pray the our leaders and other religions take the time to read the book with open minds and hearts.
