How can the life and teachings of Jesus impact the most critical global problems in our world today?
For the last twenty years, Brian McLaren has been unable to escape this life-shaping question. In Everything Must Change, he unveils a fresh and provocative vision of Jesus and his teachings, and how his message of hope can ignite purpose and passion to change the economic, environmental, military, political, and social crises that have overtaken our world.
The Good News is more than a ticket to heaven. It is an invitation to personal change and a radical challenge for global transformation. Imagine what would happen:
- if we believed that God's will really could be done on earth and not just in heaven
- if the world's leading nations spent less on weapons and more on making peace, alleviating poverty, and caring for creation
- if a renewed understanding of Jesus and his message sparked a profound spiritual awakening in a global movement of faith, hope, and love
If you are hungry for a fresh vision of what it means to be a person of faith, Everything Must Change shows what would happen when Jesus' Good News collides with a world in need.

At ReadTheSpirit, we deeply respect McLaren and recommend a number of his books, but for the next six months the "buzz" surrounding McLaren's work is going to focus both this new volume from Thomas Nelson publishing.
Two years after Jim Wallis' "God's Politics" appeared, McLaren's new book is basically a fresh hymn on a similar theme. But the two visionaries are distinct. While Wallis dreams of reuniting the branches of the evangelical movement, McLaren talks more about traditional churches imploding and envisions a new, hopeful, socially engaged movement emerging within Christianity. This book is great for groups with a discussion guide woven into the text itself. At 34 chapters, this new book may seem too thick for most small groups, but it's easy to divide the material for study.
