There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25 million addition to their building. Our local newspaper ran a front-page story not too long ago about a study revealing that one in five people in our city lives in poverty. This is a book about those two numbers.

It's a book about faith and fear, wealth and war, poverty, power, safety, terror, Bibles, bombs, and homeland insecurity. It's about empty empires and the truth that everybody's a priest, it's about oppression, occupation, and what happens when Christians support, animate, and participate in the very things Jesus came to set people free from. It's about what it means to be a part of the church of Jesus in a world where some people fly planes into buildings, while others pick up groceries in Hummers.

    " I thought I would read this book because I enjoyed the basic good news of Love Wins, and its message that God's love outshines God's judgment. While I'm glad I read it, this book did not take hold of me in the same way. It does set out the truth of western imperialism as going against the message of Christ: justice, rescue for those in need, a home for the homeless. It leaves me aware of my failure to live out, or up to, the message of mercy. "

    " Bell is a gifted communicator. While one may not agree with everything he says, he makes valid points. His passion for exegesis really brings to life what the Bible meant, during the time it was written, and FOR WHOM it was written. We often skip to "what does this mean for me or for us" without first considering the original context. Bell's comments about empire, the book of Revelation, and the significance of Exodus are very compelling. Read it! "

    " Reading about Bell's "New Exodus" understanding of Scripture helps me to understand why he believes what he does. It's all quite interesting, and on a practical level there is much to be learned from Bell's writing and videos, but his theology misses the whole point of the Bible. Jesus isn't just a good role model, he's our Creator and God. He didn't just come to save us from our own self-centeredness, he came to save us from sin. "

    " An excellent reminder of what the church's purpose should be here on earth - to change the world for the better. "
