Item Description...
Status-quo Christianity has traded the revolutionary story of Jesus for familiar cliches, pat answers, and domesticated programs.

McLaren states, "More and more Christian leaders are beginning to realize that for the millions of young adults who have recently dropped out of church, Christianity is a failed religion...It has focused on 'me' and 'my eternal destiny,' but it has failed to address the dominant societal and global realities of their lifetime..."

What he sets forth in this provocative, unsettling work is a "form of Christian faith that is holistic, integral, balanced, that offers good news for both the living and the dying, that speaks of God's grace at work both in this life and the life to come, both to individuals and to societies and the planet as a whole."

Publishers Description

How can the life and teachings of Jesus impact the most critical global problems in our world today?

For the last twenty years, Brian McLaren has been unable to escape this life-shaping question. In "Everything Must Change," he unveils a fresh and provocative vision of Jesus and his teachings, and how his message of hope can ignite purpose and passion to change the economic, environmental, military, political, and social crises that have overtaken our world.

The Good News is more than a ticket to heaven. It is an invitation to personal change and a radical challenge for global transformation. Imagine what would happen:

  • if we believed that God's will really could be done on earth and not just in heaven
  • if the world's leading nations spent less on weapons and more on making peace, alleviating poverty, and caring for creation
  • if a renewed understanding of Jesus and his message sparked a profound spiritual awakening in a global movement of faith, hope, and love

If you are hungry for a fresh vision of what it means to be a person of faith, "Everything Must Change" shows what would happen when Jesus' Good News collides with a world in need.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Africa Awareness  Mar 26, 2009
Read this book if you believe in the compassion Jesus Christ wants us to share with all people.
Emerging Church Economics  Feb 20, 2009
There are too many errors in this book for unsophisticated readers. McLaren's book has value only to readers who recognize the mistakes but are willing to learn about a position that springs from ideology and a theological framework. For me, the emerging church movement is enough to consider by itself without flawed economics intertwined.

Disappointed  Feb 1, 2009
I purchased this book and read it cover to cover and must say that I wish that I had waited until it came to our library system. First of all, if I see the words "framing" and "story" used together again in a sentence, I will probably go mad. Although the author is obviously intelligent and this book is written more as a psuedo-textbook than a regular work (it even has discussion questions at the end of each chapter) it is very ambiguous in some places. It is as if the author forgets that he is writing to a general audience (or does he) and addresses the text to other educated elites like himself. Through the book it seems like he wants to destroy the old notions of Christianity, as he incessantly berates those who disagree with his ideas of what Christianity should be, and rebuild Christianity in the new "Emerging Church" image.
That said, I do agree with some of his ideas. All in all I gave this book one star because it was a very tiring read and I really didn't learn anything new about Christianity in general. The author needs to seek counseling for the white guilt he has acquired, most likely, in college. I wish that I could return this book to where I purchased it for my money back.
Real Time  Jan 30, 2009
This book is so well written and addresses present issues as they are that you will be amazed at the insightfulness and surprised at the hope.
Biblical interpretation based on McLaren's agenda  Jan 26, 2009
The over all message of the book is true: the world is broken, but the gospel has immediate implications for this world, implications which the Church must help promote. Christians should be generous, self-sacrificing, ect.

The main problem I had with the book however, a problem that constantly distracted me from the main and positive message, is the way that McLaren falsely interprets the Bible through his agenda. It's as if McLaren decided to write a book on the topic of social justice and then searched the Bible for passages that he could interpret in such a way that they would support his claim; he allows his agenda to shape his reading of the Bible, rather than the other way around. For example, Cain and Able become a metaphor of class warfare between agriculture and shepherding, the prophesy of the New Jerusalem and a new heaven become a hopeful metaphorical picture of an ideal world that could occur through social aid (he states that this is the purpose of all "prophesy"), and Jesus' teachings become teachings that subvert the political and social evils of the world. In short, he artificially forces political and social applications on passages that are not really there. There are many other examples of this all throughout the book.

He is also fairly divisive. Rather than say, "whatever your eschatological or political beliefs, we are commanded to be generous, to show mercy, and pursue justice," he speaks of how dispensationalists and those who interpret the Bible more literally are foolish. Now, they may not be correct, but his critical attitude only makes enemies and makes the Christians whom he is "correcting" less likely to listen to his overall message of the need of service and generosity.

He also doesn't really give solutions to the problem. He spends many chapters developing the need for the government to not be involved in wars and to take the wealth from the rich and give it to the poor, but then he qualifies it by saying, "Now I'm not a pacifist or a communist..." But he doesn't explain how he expects these views to be legislated. He simply says that Christ gave the command and it is the Church's responsibility to figure out how, a responsibility with which he helped very little.

This book is not worth the reader's time. Rather read the book of Amos, the gospels, and the epistle of James.
