The word serves as liberation from domination as is clear in Thurman’s presentation. The version of Christianity presented in Du Mez’s Jesus and John Wayne reveals the tension between the word as awakening and the love of domination that sees the word and seeks to squelch its power on behalf of seizing a portion of that power instead of recognizing that it is freely given to all to be shared equally freely. In the Disney movie CCoco, the spirits of the dead come and visit the material world once a year to enjoy the food presented for them by their families. As many as want may eat of this food by taking a spiritual drumstick from the material reality’s superabundance without in any way impinging on the ability of all the dead gathered to do the same. The word seems to me analogously superabundant–we can share the gospel abundantly with all who want to receive it.
