The Dull Kind of Cutting Edge

“If your whole schtick is that of being a prophetic voice, then you have to figure out what to do about the off-chance of real repentance. If that happened, then not only would the inhabitants of Nineveh repent in dust and ashes, but your whole political theology would have to repent in dust and ashes, also, and that would be a bummer. Whatever happens, we have to keep your radical political theology. If we want to keep your theology cutting edge, we have to make sure it never cuts anything” (Empires of Dirt, p. 93).
