How do the life and teachings of Jesus address the most critical global problems in our world today?
In Everything Must Change, you will accompany Brian around the world on a search for answers. Along the way youll experience intrigue, alarm, challenge, insight, and hope. Youll get a fresh and provocative vision of Jesus and his teachings. And youll see how his core message can infuse us with purpose and passion to address the economic, environmental, military, political, and social dysfunctions that have overtaken our world.
Jesus message is more than a ticket to heaven or a formula for personal prosperity. It is an invitation to personal and global transformation. It is a radical challenge to the underlying stories that drive our suicidal systemssocial, economic, and political. It invites us to imagine what would happen
if people of faith moved beyond political polarization and a few hot-button issues to the deeper questions nobody is asking.
if the worlds leading nations spent less on weapons and more on peace-making, poverty-alleviation, and creation-care.
if a renewed understanding of Jesus and his message sparked a profound spiritual awakening in a global movement of faith, hope, and love.
if we believed that Gods will really could be done on earth and not just in heaven.
If you are hungry for a fresh vision of what it means to be a person of faith, Everything Must Change applies the good news of Jesus to a world in need, igniting a revolution of hope that can change everything. Beginning with you. Beginning now.

At ReadTheSpirit, we deeply respect McLaren and recommend a number of his books, but for the next six months the "buzz" surrounding McLaren's work is going to focus both this new volume from Thomas Nelson publishing.
Two years after Jim Wallis' "God's Politics" appeared, McLaren's new book is basically a fresh hymn on a similar theme. But the two visionaries are distinct. While Wallis dreams of reuniting the branches of the evangelical movement, McLaren talks more about traditional churches imploding and envisions a new, hopeful, socially engaged movement emerging within Christianity. This book is great for groups with a discussion guide woven into the text itself. At 34 chapters, this new book may seem too thick for most small groups, but it's easy to divide the material for study.
