Christianity has been getting a bad reputation - mainly from those who claim to be Christians but don't act like it. The idea of reclaiming the title 'Christian' from those who would only trample it underfoot, while not new, gets a twist of postmodernism in Ken Wilson's Jesus Brand Spirituality. Attempting to refocus the disillusioned on a few issues, Wilson offers a path through the false perceptions to a place where redemptive faith can start its true work.
"Jesus wants his religion back so it can be for the world again"
So begins this expertly written book by Ken Wilson, a pastor, practitioner and pilgrim to engage those drawn to the fascinating figure buried in the messy field of religion. Jesus Brand Spirituality is for those disillusioned by the current swirl of cultural conflict, moralism, and religious meanness that amounts to a form of trademark infringement on the movement that bears his name.
Combining candor, curiosity and rare insight, the author explores four dimensions of the spirituality Jesus left in his wake--active, contemplative, biblical, and communal. Practical, engaging and compelling, this fresh illumination of an ancient path is both moving and thought provoking. Phyllis Tickle, founding editor of the Religion Department at Publishers weekly calls Wilson "one of Americas most gifted evangelicals, a thoughtful, unflinching pastor for thinking Christians; but he has outdone even his own reputation here. Candid, confessional, and full of stories, these conversational chapters from a man enthralled with Jesus are shot through with the passion and the realism of an eternally-vital romance."
