Product Description

How can Christians today truly live like Jesus and be more faithful disciples? Ron Sider takes a fervent look at these and other foundational questions, many of which have been the passion of his life.

As founder and president of Evangelicals for Social Action (ESA), Sider for more than three decades has worked towards a meeting of the minds between two "branches' of the church vine. In the essays in this book, Sider calls on those in the evangelical stream to become more aware and concerned about poverty, injustice, and peacemaking, while he urges socially active Christians to embrace the great commission and to be more committed to Christ than to political agendas.

In I Am Not a Social Activist Sider urges all Christians to "make the Incarnate One the center of all we think and do."

Endorsements

"Ron holds together evangelism and social responsibility, worship and witness, prayer and action....It is this holistic faith, this pattern of behaving our beliefs, to which these chapters call us." -from the foreword by Myron S. Augsburger

"This book is a treasure chest of insightful essays from one of evangelicalism's wisest sages and boldest prophets. Each short chapter is packed with a biblically informed wisdom that challenges readers, even when (and perhaps especially when) they disagree with Ron. For all who aspire to be faithful citizens of God's beautiful kingdom, I enthusiastically recommend this work." -Gregory A. Boyd, Woodland Hills Church, Maplewood, Minnesota, and author of The Myth of a Christian Nation
