"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 possible."
– 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...."
– Ched Myers, Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries of Southern California

"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corners of the world there is a new paradigm emerging, the earth community and participatory democracy, versus the old, outdated and destructive paradigm of corporate globalization.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
