To others though, Brian is a fresh voice, a welcome antidote to the staleness, superficiality, and negativity of the religious status quo. A wide array of people from Evangelical, Catholic, and Mainline Protestant backgrounds claim that through his books they have begun to rediscover the faith they'd lost or rejected. And around the world, many readers say that he has helped them find-for the first time in their lives-a faith that makes sense and rings true. For many, he articulates the promise of what is being called "emerging Christianity."
In The Secret Message of Jesus you'll find what's at the center of Brian's critique of conventional Christianity, and what's at the heart of his expanding vision. In the process, you'll meet a Jesus who may be altogether new to you, a Jesus who is…
McLaren invites you to discover afresh the transforming message of Jesus-an open invitation to radical change, an enlightening revelation that exposes sham and ignites hope, an epic story that is good news for everyone, whatever their gender, race, class, politics, or religion.
"Pastor and best-selling author McLaren revisits the gospel material from a fresh-and at times radical-perspective . . . He does an excellent job of capturing Jesus' quiet, revolutionary style." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Here McLaren shares his own ferocious journey in pondering the teachings and actions of Jesus. It is McLaren's lack of salesmanship or agenda that creates a refreshing picture of the man from Galilee who changed history." --Donald Miller, Author of Blue Like Jazz
"In this critical book, Brian challenges us to ask what it would mean to truly live the message of Jesus today, and thus to risk turning everything upside down." --Jim Wallis, Author of God's Politics and editor of Sojourners
"Compelling, crucial and liberating: a book for those who seek to experience the blessed heat of Christianity at its source." --Anne Rice, Author of Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt
Secret Message of Jesus by Brian D. Mclaren was published by Thomas Nelson in April 2007 and is our 337th best seller. The ISBN for Secret Message of Jesus is 9780849918926.
Brian McLaren always writes a very lucid argument. Here is no exception. The message of Jesus had revolutionary consequences in his own day and it is no less powerful today … if only we could just see the significance for the world and the big issues we face. The Gospel is more than a personal faith which leads to prayer; it is a call to action for justice in the coming Kingdom which affects politics, the environment … indeed everything. The ‘kingdom manifesto’ as he calls the Sermon on the Mount is ‘the most concentrated example of the teaching of Jesus’ (p117), but he also explores many other passages to back up his argument that this message has been ‘secret’ to many. Beautifully written, this book has profound implications for the hope of ‘heaven on earth’ as sought by the likes of Martin Luther King and Mother Teresa of Calcutta. It is well worth reading.
