Review

The Myth of a Christian Religion is one of the most sensible, fog-clearing books that I've read on the subject God's Kingdom to date. I highly recommend it to all Christians, especially those who wish to cut through the religious clutter that surrounds American politics today. -- Frank Viola

Imitating the life of Jesus isn't solely about embracing his message of love, sacrifice and service, according to evangelical pastor Boyd. In his latest book, the author of The Myth of a Christian Nation also asserts that becoming part of the “beautiful revolution” means rebelling against everything that is incompatible with that way of life, including violence, poverty, sexual promiscuity and secularism. While exhortations to practice the presence of God and be generous to the poor are likely to be uncontroversial, the writer seems to enjoy afflicting the comfortable, whether they are church-going believers or secular atheists. His critique of the “pagan values of our nation” and his impassioned call to choose love over judgment may occasion heated conversation among more conservative readers, while his endearing honesty and accessible style will undoubtedly appeal to others. Boyd has included an extensive action guide, which includes multiple exercises for self-reflection, as well as his practical suggestions for churches and small groups on how, as he sees it, to lose one's religion and become a part of the radical kingdom of Jesus. (May) -- Publisher’s Weekly

“Greg Boyd is doing the prophetic work of exposing the false gods and idols of our age, debunking the militant “Christianity” of crusades and “holy” wars, the triumphalist evangelicalism of moral gatekeeping and mean fingerpointing, the prosperity “gospel” of the American dream and manifest destiny ... so that we can rediscover the true gospel of our Lover Jesus that casts the mighty from their thrones and lifts up the lowly.” -- Shane Claiborne

Product Description

The kingdom of God is a beautiful revolution. Marked by the radical life, love, servanthood, and humility of Jesus, it stands in stark contrast to the values and ways of the world.Regrettably, many who profess to follow Christ have bought into the world’s methods, seeking to impose a sort of Christianized ethical kingdom through politics and control. In this illuminating sequel to his bestselling book The Myth of a Christian Nation, Dr. Gregory Boyd points us to a better way—a way of seeing and living that is consistent with the gospel of Jesus and his kingdom. Between the extremes of passivity on the one hand and political holy war on the other lies the radical, revolutionary path of imitating Jesus.In twelve areas ranging from racial and social issues to stewardship of the planet, this book will convince and inspire you to live a Christlike life of revolt and beauty—and it will help you attain a practical lifestyle of kingdom impact.
