Reconstructing A Whole New Christianity,
This review is from: Discovering The God Imagination: Reconstructing A Whole New Christianity (Paperback)If you have ever had trouble reconciling traditional atonement theories with an all powerful God who loves unconditionally you should read this book. Jonathan Brink suggests that we have misunderstood the gospel. He backs up his theory with scripture (his knowledge of scripture is impressive) and his explanations fit with what I know about scripture and God - so much that I found myself repeatedly thining "why didn't I think of that before".
The question "what is the gospel?" is at the very heart of Christianity and our answer to the question most certainly impacts the way we live out our faith. This is a great opportunity for us to join in an important conversation about the gospel, the problem God wants to solve for us and what it means to be a part of the solution.
As you read through Discovering The God Imagination I think you will find yourself having a lot of "aha" moments.
I highly recommend the book.
