Publisher Description

What do the life and teaching of Jesus have to say about the most critical global problems in our world today? McLaren asks, “Shouldn’t a message purporting to be the best news in the world be doing better than this?” What he sets forth in this provocative, unsettling work is a “form of Christian faith that is holistic, integral, balanced, that offers good news for both the living and the dying, that speaks of God’s grace at work both in this life and the life to come, both to individuals and to societies and the planet as a whole.”

"This is an "everyone must read," type of book. I found it very inspirational, especially once I reached the end. It is a well written description of the application of the Gospel message to global challenges; prosperity, security, inequity, etc. I definitely feel hopeful."

    " Brian D. McLaren is one of the "emergents" mentioned in The Great Emergence. Taking a look at his writing to gain some perspective. "

    " McClaren has a way of making complex issues easy to comprehend and forces you to wrestle with them instead of being paralyzed. Appropriate for living in Berkeley, CA:) "

    " Just started it, but I am excited about it. It is written in a more interesting style than several I have read recently, and his premeses seem to be right on target. "

    " A thoughtful book. Author chastises Christians for focusing almost solely on divisive issues. He challenges us to move beyond these issues and focus on several important Global issues, through which all the people of the Earth can be blessed. Issues include: Being good stewards of this Planet, Poverty, The widening gap between have's and have not's, improving relationship between the religions. He uses Jesus life as a blueprint citing how he reached out to Samaritans and Caananites of his day, scolded the wealthy and those who heaped up riches while not helping the poor. I found it insightful and something I will ponder about for some time. "

    " After several other McLaren titles, I thought I'd enjoy this one. Maybe it's about timing, but the writing didn't engage me. His topic holds great potential, but the tone of the writer (see what I know/how I'm thinking) proved distracting to me. "

    " I enjoy McLaren's writings, although we don't come from the same political perspective at all. This was my least favorite of his books; very preachy with far-reaching policy recommendations that are fairly unrealistic. "

    " we wrestle not against flesha and blood, but against POWERS...against PRINCIPALITIES. Mclaren names names, those principalities (war, overconsumption, de-humanization) and explores ways in which Jesus came to deliver humanity from these as much as our own sin and death. "
