Format: Paperback
Scott Gustafson in clear and easy to read language speaks about some startling ideas that are found in scripture, but which have been forgotten due to our cultural relgion covering up the message of the Bible. The fact that morality comes as a result of the human fall into sin, and is a force for death, rather than life, was a new way for me of seeing the context of the Biblical writings. He makes use of the work of Raine Eisler to define dominator and partnership ways and shows how the scriptures both Old and New Testament are examples of a partnership model trying to survive in a dominator system. This book would be helpful to anyone who is working on models of change both in the church, as well as any political organization. Anyone in a position of power in an organization would find it useful in defining a role that has as it purpose, the fostering of partnerships rather than autoritarian relationships.

Scott Gustafson brings to light an important and exciting new approach to understanding the Bible that is dynamite. His insights make the biblical message an important social and political statement that confronts the timeless hypocrisy of those in power. It really makes you think. It stirs the soul. It's the kind of thing that puts steel in faith. This author makes it clear how much we have forgotten. But it's not too late to learn that what was forgotten can makes all things new.

Some worthwhile points to ponder. The author argues that we live in a dominator model, but Jesus preached to the partnership model, which is the model the American Indians tended to practice. He does have some very good points about Jesus's parables and how to interpret or view them. He also argues that early Christianity under Paul was intended to be a partnership model. But the US, in his classification, is a very dominator model and his ideas about how to move the people and country (or any people and country) to a partnership model are very light & I couldn't see where they could really work.
