Everything Must Change: Jesus, Global Crises, and a Revolution of Hope

Emergent Village announced today that Brian McLaren, emerging church guru and author, is launching his new book, Everything Must Change: Jesus, Global Crises, and a Revolution of Hope , due out in October, 2007.  In Everything Must Change, McLaren asks,

“Shouldn’t a message purporting to be the best news in the world be doing better than this?” 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.”  — Editorial Review on Amazon.com

McLaren’s book joins the chorus of other emerging and traditional evangelical church leaders urging the church of Jesus Christ to move beyond “spiritual” concerns only, and engage all of our culture, and its problems, with the practical good news of the Gospel.  Should be interesting reading.
