Christian Anarchism

4.5  ·  Rating Details ·  4 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Christian anarchism has been around for at least as long as “secular” anarchism. Leo Tolstoy is its most famous proponent, but there are many others, such as Jacques Ellul, Vernard Eller, Dave Andrews or the people associated with the Catholic Worker movement. They offer a compelling critique of the state, the church and the economy based on the New Testament.

However, there is a school of thought that suggests that Jesus’ teachings were so counter-cultural and so against Roman law that it constitutes anarchism.

Alexandre Christoyannopoulos provides an introduction to this school of thought. He outlines the theories behind it and how the major thinkers have formed them
