Publisher's Summary

There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25 million addition to their building. Our local newspaper ran a front-page story not too long ago about a study revealing that one in five people in our city lives in poverty. This is a book about those two numbers.
It's a book about faith and fear, wealth and war, poverty, power, safety, terror, Bibles, bombs, and homeland insecurity. It's about empty empires and the truth that everybody's a priest, it's about oppression, occupation, and what happens when Christians support, animate, and participate in the very things Jesus came to set people free from. It's about what it means to be a part of the church of Jesus in a world where some people fly planes into buildings, while others pick up groceries in Hummers.

Purpose of the Church

What did you love best about Jesus Wants to Save Christians?

Towards the end of the book, Bell addresses and defines the Eucharist. This interpretation is one I have never heard. I find his investigation deep, enlightening, and challenging. He also gives an awesome definition of the Church and how believers should respond as both a part of the community and as an individual. Bell does a great job summing up what following Christ is all about and in readdressing what "Christianity" should look like. His pithy comments also help move the book along.

Another liberating, inspiring, illuminating read

Chewing on it still. Such a prescient book for.our times. So well constructed and grounded in sound theology. Wish the chirch would hear it...but perhaps it has and the rest are just busy with their bricks and temples and walls.

I love the unity that this book begs for! It showed me what and who is my enemy to love.
