Book Summary:

Many Americans think that race problems are a thing of the past because we no longer live under the Jim Crow laws that once sustained overt structures of segregation. Unfortunately, says Paul Louis Metzger, today we live under an updated version of segregation, through the subtle power of unchallenged norms of consumer preference. Consumerism affects and infects the church, reinforcing race and class divisions in society. Intentionally or unintentionally, many churches have set up structures of church growth that foster segregation, such as appealing to consumer appetites. Metzger here argues that the evangelical Christian church needs to admit this fault and intentionally move away from race, class, and consumer segregation. Challenging the consumerism that fosters ethnic and economic divisions and distorts evangelical Christianity, Consuming Jesus puts forth a theologically grounded call to restructure the church's passions and practices, transforming the evangelical imagination around a nobler, all-consuming vision of the Christian faith.

Book Summary:

"Through a psychological study of the early lives of a number of persons associated with the social gospel and an analysis of the subtext of their books and sermons, Susan Curtis argues that social gospelers were instrumental in the development of new ideas about work, family, politics, and advertising, which, after the catalyst of World War I, contributed to and legitimated the emergence of a secular culture in the 1920s... The author has fascinatingly portrayed the phenomenon of American culture Protestantism in this stimulating book."--Dewey D. Wallace "American Studies International."

Book Summary:

Why did Jesus die? What does it mean to say that ‘he suffered for our sins’? Many believers have seriously misconstrued the central beliefs and narratives of Christian talk about the death of Jesus and how this offers hope and life to the world. This matters a great deal, whether you are a Christian or not, because theories of religious conviction that depend upon dividing the world into victim and victimiser – and using the language, assumptions and tactics of the victimiser – are positively dangerous. They lead to suffering, torture and death, both physically and psychologically.Consuming Passion will help both individuals and small groups understand and participate in the lively current debate about the meaning of the cross and the atonement. In a provocative series of reflections the contributors challenge the theology implicit in much evangelical and catholic teaching, and exemplified by Mel Gibson’s film The Passion of the Christ.The contributors include James Alison, Simon Barrow, Jonathan Bartley, Steve Chalke, Giles Fraser, Kathy Galloway, Stuart Murray, Ched Myers, Michael Northcott, Anne Richards, Kevin Scully, Vic Theissen and J Denny Weaver.

Book Summary:

Just as the human body needs to ingest food and water to live and thrive, so the Bible teaches that spiritual feeding is essential for salvation and life. "The one who feeds on me will live because of me" (John 6:57). Spiritual malnourishment results from confessing Jesus without feeding on Jesus. "Unless you eat the flesh of the son of man and drink his blood you have no life in you" (John 6:53). Jesus was broken and poured to be our nourishment, "I am the living bread. . . this bread is my flesh which I give for the life of the world" (John 6:51). Consistent devotional feeding on the broken and poured out Jesus nourishes internal formation of the life of Christ, "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I IN HIM" - John 6:56. Scriptural engagement with the psalms of David provides an instructive example for feeding on Jesus that leads to spiritual growth and transformation. The process of feeding on Jesus results in spiritual formation of the life of Christ within a believer that overflows in ministry to one another and mission to the world.

Book Summary:

What does Christian witness look like in an increasingly multifaith society? While it is more important than ever to preach the Word of God, as Scripture exhorts us, it is also important that we dialogue with people from diverse perspectives. Unfortunately, too often the evangelical movement has been guilty of monologue in its engagement (or, more often, its disengagement) of people from other religious traditions and worldviews. This book is designed to help evangelical Christ-followers remain orthodox while entering into meaningful discussions with people from other faith walks. We live in an age of extremes, where people tend toward monologue or dialogue: a cold turkey, drive-by-shooting evangelistic approach or a lifestyle, relational approach that avoids verbal witness. This book promotes evangelism and dialogue, not one to the exclusion of the other. And as such it also promotes the need for thoughtful, sensitive communication during a time when our nation is reeling from the onslaught of the culture wars. The problem has not been our God or the Bible, but our approach to God and the Bible. As a result of our inauthentic witness, our God has looked all too common rather than as the uncommon God revealed as Jesus Christ. In light of this spiritual and biblical gut check, our witness in the twenty-first century will likely look very different. As Metzger says, "I want Jesus to be the stumbling block to faith, not me."

Book Summary:

This book compares our contemporary preoccupation with ownership and consumption with the role of property and possessions in the biblical world, contending that Christian theology provides a valuable entry point to discussing the issue of private property—a neoliberal tool with the capacity to shape the world in which we live by exercising control over the planet’s resources. Babie and Trainor draw on the teaching on property and possessions of Jesus of Nazareth. They demonstrate how subsequent members of the Jesus movement—the writers of early collection of Jesus sayings (called ‘Q’), and the gospels of Mark and Luke—reformulated Jesus’ teaching for different contexts that was radical and challenging for their own day. Their view of wealth and possessions continues today to be as relevant as ever. By placing the insights of the Galilean Jesus and the early Jesus movement into conversation with contemporary views on private property and consumer culture, the authors develop legal, philosophical and theological insights, what they describe as ‘seven theses’, into how our desire for ethical living fares in the neoliberal marketplace.
