New book by Lamont Colucci explores international relations in the Bible

The International Relations of the Bible, a new book by Professor of Politics and Government Lamont Colucci, is available for preorder on amazon.com. The book is expected to be released in June.

The book explores the world, politics and people of the Old and New Testaments. Its description states: “International relations is an increasingly important topic for the average American. It determines job prospects, economic growth and decline, war, peace, and whether or not a foreign entity uses a weapon of mass destruction.

“The practice and theory of international relations by today’s presidents and dictators is grounded in ideologies that have shaped societies throughout history—ideologies that dominate the world of the Bible. Whether it was the Babylonian and Egyptian empires, the influence of Greek Hellenism, or the Romans’ critical role, international relations are an omnipresent backdrop. There can be no story of Exodus, no Babylonian captivity, no explanation for the constant war in Syria, no publicans or Roman governors, no judgment by Pontius Pilate, and no St. Paul’s story as a Roman citizen, without considering the role of international affairs.”
