How does a Christian “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and unto God what is God’s”? This book, developed from the 2007 Bingham Colloquium, examines the New Testament’s response to the empires of God and Caesar. Two chapters explore the Old Testament’s concept of empire, and six others address the response to the notion of empire—both human and divine—in the various authors of the New Testament. A final chapter investigates how the Church Fathers regarded the matter. The essays display various methods and positions; together, they represent the state of empire studies in the New Testament.
