* The world has changed dramatically since the first century . . . but Jesus hasn't. In this provocative, hopeful book, Bell asks what the church might look like if today's believers fully embraced "the way" of love, peace, sharing possessions, compassion, risk, forgiveness, and harmony. Could we convince a highly wired, cynical culture to start listening again? 208 pages, softcover from HarperOne.
"This book is for those who need a fresh take on Jesus and what it means to live the kind of life he teaches us to live. This pursuit of Jesus is leading us backward as much as forward. . . . I am learning that what seems brand new is often the discovery of something that's been there all along—it just got lost somewhere and it needs to be picked up, dusted off, and reclaimed."
—from Velvet Elvis
