While everyone else talks about their "worldview," Leonard Sweet tells believers to get a "worldlife." He says Christians who want to have an impact in the 21st century must ditch life as an agenda, and take up life as an adventure. They need to perform the ancient dance of faith in front of a postmodern world that desperately needs to learn the steps. In his witty, enigmatic way, Sweet offers concepts and practices covering all aspects of life, including education, friendship, family, marriage, leadership, finances, personal health, aging, conserving creation, ministry, and service.
Getting a Christian worldview is all the rage these days. But how about a Christian worldlife? Got one of those? Leonard Sweet wants to show you the ins and outs of living an old-fashioned faith in these newfangled times. In his engaging, symphonic, thought-bytes style, Sweet invites you to . . . Mezuzah your inverse * Do dirt and do the dishes * Cycle to church Give history a shove * Cheer rivals from the bench * Dance the salsa SoulSalsa unpacks biblical faith in ways that can change how you live in the real world. You can be a man or woman who walks the ancient path of a disciple in the world of the future. Because the NEW future is NOW--and now is the time to practice the "17 Lifestyle Requirements for Membership in the Postmodern Body of Christ." Its no longer enough to say "Say Amen, Somebody." Its time to "Dance the Salsa, Everybody!"--in a culture that desperately needs to see your moves.

'Sweet has a knack for making concepts like 'postmodern' -- a word that has spooked many an evangelical -- sound like wonderful opportunities for New Paradigm Christianity. He uses trendy, computer-based language to convey some spiritual points (prayer is our 'uplink' to God; the entire book is a 'lifeware design package'), but his enthusiasm is so contagious that even Luddite readers may have to give technology another chance.'
