What do the life and teaching of Jesus have to say about the most critical global problems in our world today? Acclaimed author and Emergent church leader Brian McLaren states, More and more Christian leaders are beginning to realize that for the millions of young adults who have recently dropped out of church, Christianity is a failed religion. Why? Because it has specialized in dealing with 'spiritual needs' to the exclusion of physical and social needs. It has focused on 'me' and 'my eternal destiny,' but it has failed to address the dominant societal and global realities of their lifetime: systemic injustice, poverty, and dysfunction. 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.

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 2/7/2014

    " 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:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/22/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/14/2014

    " Intriguing and complicated book, and I agreed with many of his ideas. I may reread it sometime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcus | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Wright | 1/7/2014

    " The best of Brian McLaren - he really lays it out on the line - no holes barred. Disturbing, hard, truth, compelling, and wonderfully exhilarating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/2/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 10/25/2013

    " Inspiring! A must-read for all humans. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca Waring-Crane | 10/13/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Dahl | 10/6/2013

    " It was a good, thought provoking book. My first introduction to McLaren. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/8/2013

    " This book honestly changed my view of what being a christian in the world means. I could not stop reading it & I'm ready to go back and start all over again! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marie | 1/29/2013

    " Presenting liberation theology. What a disappointment! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glen Asbury | 11/12/2012

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 9/30/2012

    " Some really good points, I'll leave it at that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 6/10/2012

    " McLaren is so tough to deal with... he challenges me so much but I always have this uneasiness as to whether he invalidates himself for me to truly respond to... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/6/2012

    " Lots to consider. Very detailed look at mutiple levels of problems. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 8/6/2011

    " The message is great but it seemed a little arrogant on the part of the author as if he were introducing some great new thought to the reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 4/2/2011

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adam | 12/16/2010

    " I liked what he had to say, although there was not a whole lot of new information but I found it to be poorly written. I'm just not a big fan of McLaren's writing style but I do like his worldview. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Uncle | 11/18/2010

    " Reading this for my Church book group. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienna | 1/28/2010

    " So much research was put in this book, not a very easy read...you will have to know something about the Bible to read this book and a Christian per say. I believe they spoke about other religious practices, but it was okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Robicheaux Crouch | 5/11/2009

    " I just started it...so far so good! "
