If you suspect that we could have possibly underestimated Jesus Christ, then Cosmos Reborn is singing your song. With the insight of the mystics, the way with words of the poets, and the thinking of a real theologian, John Crowder ushers us into the New Testament's vision of Jesus and the One in whom all things, and all peoples have been gathered together forever-even as it was eternally planned by the blessed Trinity. --Dr. C Baxter Kruger
Cosmos Reborn may be the most accessible theology book I've seen in my lifetime ... the theology book the average person will read and love. If you've thought theology is hard to understand or even boring, this book is about to rock your world. John Crowder has distilled the thoughts of numerous great historic and contemporary theologians and blended them with what the Spirit has taught him through the Scriptures in a way that has the potential to transform you. --Dr. Steve McVey
About the Author
John Crowder is an internationally recognized author, speaker and advocate of supernatural Christianity. John is on the forefront of a fresh renewal movement marked by ecstatic joy, miracles and recovering the foundational preaching of the cross of grace. As founder of Sons of Thunder Ministries & Publications, John hosts massive evangelism campaigns in some of the poorest areas of the world. SOT also houses, clothes, feeds and educates orphaned and abandoned children. His team hosts mission trips, bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ into some of the most dangerous places on the globe - in addition to visiting the poor in garbage dumps, leper colonies and war zones. John has authored seven books, including: Money. Sex. Beer. God., Chosen for Paradise, Cosmos Reborn, Mystical Union, Seven Spirits Burning, The New Mystics, and The Ecstasy of Loving God. He also publishes a number of multimedia resources, including a bi-annual magazine, The Ecstatic. John broadcasts a free weekly video teaching - The Jesus Trip - featuring fresh teaching. John also offers a monthly Web seminar for subscribers called Inner Sanctum at TheNewMystics.TV John hosts multiple supernatural equipping schools throughout the year, called Mystical Schools. These are three-day intensives aimed at instilling a theology of grace and the finished work of the cross, while activating believers in a miraculous, Spirit-filled life of creative miracles. He also speaks at conferences, seminars and churches worldwide. John, his wife Lily, and their four children find satisfaction in the simplicity of loving God and demonstrating the finished works of the Cross. They are founders of Cana New Wine Seminary.

I come from a non-Charismatic background. Therefore, I have to connect the dots on some illustrations or allusions made when regarding the beliefs of that particular background. If you do not have the Charismatic background, Cosmos Reborn is probably his most accessible book.
As with his other books, there is an ADHD flavor to the presentation of the material. At times it seems he is all over the place like a ping pong ball, and you have to really slow down and make sure you are on the same trail. It gets confusing sometimes. HOWEVER, some of the chapters were straightforward. I believe the following chapters/subjects were presented the best:
2 -- The case for a loving God
3 -- The Vicarious Man
4 -- Hell is sort of real
5 -- The faith of God
7 -- Born from above
I struggle with belief in healing, lack of poverty, etc. that he addresses later on in the book. This is a big subject that I wish was broken down as he did with the subjects in chapters listed above.
But, this is true with all his books. Some chapters are clear, while others are not. HOWEVER, he throws out enough to keep you wanting to dig more. Patience has to be practiced when diving into Crowder. You will get frustrated at times, but the work is well worth it. I pray one day I see things the way he sees them in all areas.
The hardback is supposed to ship today. I will reread it again because it is that good. I cannot wait to mark it up.
Buy the book. You will walk away frustrated, challenged and happy all at the same time. GLORY!
I've been around grace and Trinitarian theology for a few years now. It rocked my world back then just as now. But even though some concepts in this book have become familiar for me, I really appreciate how Crowder so thoroughly and specifically addresses certain issues to help deepen the understanding both from a scriptural and historical perspective.
For instance, in this book, Crowder addresses many detailed "problems" such as the 'timing' of the new creation and born again reality (is it a transaction that occurs when you say the sinner's prayer or...?). He also addresses the difference between universalism and inclusionism (I think I made up that last term, but he really helps to clarify the issue of inclusion/universal atonement vs outright universalism). And I think as important as anything else, I feel like I was given "permission" to enjoy both mystery and high hopes for God's eternal plan for humanity. Read the book. You'll see what I mean.
Crowder addresses the plausibility of universalism, but not the presumption of it. Three cheers for Crowder, who in the end comes to the conclusion that it’s all grace. Salvation is God’s business after all! Read this book and you just may join those of us who have “retired from our religious self-efforts.” As a prerequisite, I suggest that you take a couple of humility pills, then start swimming upstream from what is popularly called “Christianity.”
