Description

"Bell and Golden trace redemption from Genesis to Revelation...[delivering] a tough message the American church needs to hear."
--Christianity Today

"Equal parts prophetic warning and call to action, Jesus Wants to Save Christians exhorts Jesus's followers to sacrifice their comforts and hear the 'cry of the oppressed.'"
--Grand Rapids Press

In Jesus Wants to Save Christians, Rob Bell, the New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins joins with Don Golden, Christian activist and vice president of World Relief, to call upon the church to break from its cultural captivity and challenge the assumptions of the American Empire. Bell, whom the New York Times calls "one of the country's most influential evangelical pastors" and whom Time Magazine named one of the most influential people in 2011, is a pioneer in the movement seeking new Christian expression, and anyone who has ever questioned their faith or is those looking for answers they cannot find in their own church's standard teachings will discover a new creed in Bell and Golden's provocative and spiritually enlightening work.

Back cover copy

"We want you to discover the Bible as its own best commentary. We offer you a way to read the Bible that doesn't require a library or a preacher or a politician or an academic to interpret for you. Once justice is seen as the thread woven into the fabric of biblical history, the whole Bible becomes much clearer. Justice is the issue when God redeems Israel from Pharaoh. Justice is at the heart of the Sinai law and justice is what Israel must show the world as a kingdom of priests. Justice is the measure the Jews failed to meet in their days of power and empire in Jerusalem. It was justice the prophets proclaimed as the way of return during the exile of the Jews in Babylon and it was justice that Jesus incarnated."
