A new book by Postdoctoral Fellow Kyle Lambelet has been published by Georgetown University Press. It is Lambelet’s first book.
In ¡Presente!: Nonviolent Politics and the Resurrection of the Dead, Lambelet develops a lived theology of nonviolence through an extended case study of the movement to close the School of the Americas (also known as the SOA or WHINSEC), analyzing how the presence of the dead shapes a distinctive, transnational, nonviolent movement. By developing a messianic political theology in dialogue with the SOA Watch movement, Lambelet contributes to Christian ethics as he explores the political implications of the presence of the dead and demonstrates how religious and moral dynamics remain an essential part of strategic nonviolence and civil resistance.
