The message is simple. As the editors put it, "This book is an attempt to strike a balance between a postcolonial reading of the New Testament and one that recognizing the contributions of that reading, yet posits a very different view of the ‘kingdom of God (p. 212).'" In other words, "…the New Testament writers affirm that Jesus is Lord, not with the sole intent of debunking Caesar and his empire, but to offer a stark contrast between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan." Now, the Roman Empire may behave in ways that is aligned with the kingdom of Satan, but that doesn't mean there is a one-for-one correspondance. Rome could do some things well for a temporal, human government.
