A Jubilee Society

Brueggemann got me thinking over lunch today. Is it possible to conceive of a society in which dramatic, decisive acts of forgiveness – think of Jubilee, for example – do NOT invite the cynical mentality of contempt and the destructive habits of entitlement on the part of those forgiven? (Consider e. g. Romans 6:1ff.)

Among the many ways that Wright has forced my thinking is that I must learn the economic mechanics of international, third-world debt.  And now Brueggemann is piling on!
