Summary

Rob Bell’s highly-praised third book, Jesus Wants to Save Christians, is his most political yet. Published as part of the Rob Bell Classics re-launch, this is an inspiring call-to-arms for Christians to tackle poverty, inequality and oppression.
‘There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25 million addition to their building,’ writes Rob Bell. ‘Our local newspaper ran a front-page story not too long ago about a study revealing that one in five people in our city live in poverty. This is a book about those two numbers.’
Jesus Wants to Save Christians is a book about faith and fear, wealth and war, poverty, power, safety, terror, Bibles, bombs, and homeland insecurity.

Critic reviews

"The author of Velvet Elvis and Sex God teams up with fellow pastor Golden to write a manifesto that packs as much sociopolitical zing as rhetorical punch. If Americans today miss the central message of the Bible, say the authors, the reason is that the United States is an empire like those described in Scripture that build powerful armies and seek to protect what they accumulate rather than promote justice and mercy. Chapter titles such as "Swollen-bellied black babies, soccer moms on Prozac, and the mark of the beast" will provoke many readers. Likely to get a bigger rise is the suggestion that when the Bible says enemies will one day worship together, that includes today's enemies, the Taliban and al-Qaeda…. This dramatic book is politically charged but not party-bent, bearing a message evangelicals need: that Jesus didn't come just to save people for heaven someday but to transform his followers and the physical world now."
