Joel Green Endorses SUBVERSIVE MEALS

"Working especially with the New Testament writings of Luke and Paul, Streett demonstrates the surprisingly political significance of the Lord's Supper. That is, the Supper had not only to do with the church's internal life, but it spoke profoundly of the church's rejection of Roman imperial ideology and the practices by which it was propagated. The consequences of this study are both historically important and theologically challenging, since Streett's work participates in the ongoing destruction of the walls that separate theology and practice, and worship and politics."

—Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary
