From Walter Wink in Engaging the Powers (1992):
Without a clear idea of the contrast between God’s domination-free order and the Domination System, the gospel is proclaimed in a sociopolitical vacuum, a timeless, placeless, noncontextual, eternal nowhere. Gospel truths are handled like everlasting principles entirely unrelated to the specificity of any real world. And the Powers are consequently reduced to general structural constants ostensibly prevailing ineluctably everywhere and in every time…The gospel has a very specific context: the Domination System. And the gospel has a specific response to that system: the liberating message of Jesus…The gospel is not an ideal beyond realization. It is rather a continual lure toward the fullest conceivable life for all.
