Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Purpose of the Church"
    What did you love best about Jesus Wants to Save Christians?

    Towards the end of the book, Bell addresses and defines the Eucharist. This interpretation is one I have never heard. I find his investigation deep, enlightening, and challenging. He also gives an awesome definition of the Church and how believers should respond as both a part of the community and as an individual. Bell does a great job summing up what following Christ is all about and in readdressing what "Christianity" should look like. His pithy comments also help move the book along.

    "Listen with your bones ... With the depth of your soul"

    This revealing look at the human condition shines light where darkness has reigned since human life began.

    The message will inform your understanding, align beautifully with your personal experience and liberate your future. If you decide to listen with your bones ... With the depths of your soul.

    "A great story told a new way"

    I liked it and for me it was thought provoking. Some will find it too liberal. But I was looking for a new view of what the church could be. Two thumbs up!!

    "Christian Apologetics meets Liberation Theology"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Apologetics of the book are a bit exhausting, in that Rob & Don bend over backwards to show how everything in the meta-narrative of the Bible fits together pretty seamlessly. The refreshing take is that they're building a hybrid of modern Evangelicalism with Gustavo Gutierrez (and who would ever have expected that?). Seeing the Exodus as the central lens of interpretation for Christ makes liberation more important than sacrificial atonement, and that's remarkable for many, many Christians.

    I enjoyed the conversational presentation, and the manner in which they make some deep thoughts very accessible.
