Product Description

In Like a Hammer Shattering Rock, McKenna looks at how the gospels originally affected Jesus' society and followers, and questions why these gospels aren't generating a comparable impact today with their original power and insights. These reflections encourage us to live the Word of God and allow the Spirit to drive believers and the Church to change, live, and experience the message in the still-vibrant, life-giving Word of God that is like a hammer shattering rock - and become that Word to others in the world.

Publisher's Description

Renowned Catholic author Megan McKenna celebrates her 50th book with a controversial interpretation of the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John and what they mean for the Church and society today.

In many ways, modern audiences have become so familiar with the gospels that we've stopped listening and integreting their wisdom into our everyday lives. Acclaimed author Megan McKenna explores the messages of the four gospels in the context of daily life when they were originally written and interprets their meaning for our modern world. While some argue for the development of new gospels for the 21st century, McKenna argues that we haven't paid due attention to the ones we already have; in many cases, we've ignored sections of these teachings entirely and twisted their meaning to suit our own agendas. McKenna breaks it down, gospel by gospel, and shows us how the lessons of Jesus's apostles continue to resonate.

Editorial Reviews

"Yes the gospels are truly a good news. Jesus today and yesterday is calling his disciples to love and to act in love. Megan McKenna's excellent book is a source of hope. She calls the disciples of Jesus to be a good news to the poor and the rejected."
-Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche, an international federation of group homes for people with developmental disabilities
