BOESAK, Allan A.. Theological reflections on empire. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

Since the meeting of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches in Accra, Ghana (2004), and the adoption of the Accra Declaration, a debate has been raging in the churches about globalisation, socio-economic justice, ecological responsibility, political and cultural domination and globalised war. Central to this debate is the concept of empire and the way the United States is increasingly becoming its embodiment. Is the United States a global empire? This article argues that the United States has indeed become the expression of a modern empire and that this reality has considerable consequences, not just for global economics and politics but for theological reflection as well.

Palavras-chave : empire; colonialism; globalisation; Accra declaration; World Alliance of Reformed Churches.
