The God who set aside power in order to live out lovefully expressing that love on Calvarys treeis at the core of the Christian message to the world. Yet in the centuries since Christs refusal to yield to Satans temptation to establish His kingdom through economic, political and religious power, the Church has struggled to make the same refusal. In Choose Love Not Power, scholar, activist and modern-day prophet Tony Campolo explores the relationship between love and power, beginning with an examination of Jesus life and working toward a "theology of power" for Christians today. He surveys the implications of choosing love over power when it comes to the global communitys most pressing issuesenvironmental degradation, economic inequality and instability, and perpetual war. Dr. Campolo suggests that the choice between love and power begins close to home: Christ-followers who choose love over power in marriage and in parenting will likewise opt for love in their churches, communities and governments. The growing number of believers seeking a more authentically Christ-like way to be "Christian" in a diverse, pluralistic society will be challenged and encouraged by this unflinching look at Jesus example of love.
