So if you have issues with seeing Christ’s message as one of living a non-materialistic ( non-worldly) spiritual LIFE, one separate from a life of compulsive blind consumption and exploitation , then this book is probably not for you.
However, if you are seeking the beauty, mystery, and the radical message of hope found in the Scriptures, then this will be a very useful guide to help reflect on this...the true Gospel. It will be enlightened Christians who will enjoy this book and will find new perspectives and new tools for spiritual growth....ultimately leading to a closer relationship to God.
Aliveness, [Jesus] will teach, is a gift available to all by God's grace. It flows not from taking but from giving, not from fear but from faith, not from conflict but from reconciliation, not from domination but from service. It isn't found in the outward trappings of religion—rules, and rituals, controversies and scruples, temples and traditions. No, it springs up from our innermost being like a fountain of living water. It intoxicates us like the best win ever and so turns life from a disappointment into a banquet. This new life of aliveness and love opens us up to rethink everything—to go back and become like little children again. Then we can rediscover the world with a fresh, childlike wonder—seeing the world in a new light, the light of Christ (126). I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to reading more of McLaren's works! Check it for a deep, meditative read.*Disclaimer: I received a complimentary print copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this honest review.
