Shaking the Gates of Hell proposes a way for people of faith to respond to the growing power of corporations and their domination of the world's cultures, governments, and global institutions.
"Delgado will not prove to you that corporate globalization is
the Beast running amok. She will instead nail the destructive
logic of the Beast, and show the way out of the interlocking
network of the IMF, World Bank, and the WTO. Reflecting
on her participation in nonviolent direct resistance against
these Powers, and describing movements for global justice,
such as they have emerged in Chiapas, Cochabamba, Nigeria,
Argentina, India, and Kenya, Delgado prepares Christians for
faith-led resistance as a way of life."
Carol S. Robb, Ph.D., Margaret Dollar Professor of Christian Social Ethics, San Francisco Theological Seminary and Graduate Theological Union
"This book doesn't just shake, it rocks! Delgado offers a
powerful account, lucid and lyrical, of the crossroads before
us: the 'corporate security state' or the better world that is
Catherine Keller, Drew University, author of God & Power
"Delgado offers a truly incarnational theology from the heart
of her social location in this movement, clearly discerning
the 'signs of our times' (environmental devastation, economic
domination and violence) while reminding us of the power of
biblical hope. This is a handbook for the next generation...."

"This book speaks hard truth to hard power it's unsparing, and that's what we need. It's also loving, in the (not so easy) way that the Gospels are loving."
Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future
"This book is authentic and convincing with personal experience and a great vision. In many corners of the world there is a new paradigm emerging, the earth community and participatory democracy, versus the old, outdated and destructive paradigm of corporate globalization. What happened in Seattle in 1999 between the people and the WTO was a sign of hope, and will happen again in this year of 2007 in Heiligendamm, Germany. Get out of apathy. A better world is possible. I read this book with a moved heart and new encouragement. The earth will arise and we with the earth."
Jürgen Moltmann, author of A Theology of Hope, The Crucified God
