A New Christian Manifesto

New Price: $20.00

by Bob Ekblad
REQUIRED for SFD 501 - Prayer.

This book is a powerful rereading of the Lord s Prayer and a call for the church to reject existing power structures by pledging allegiance to the kingdom of God and proclaiming the gospel for all especially those cast outside the mainstream of society. Bob Ekblad delivers a radical new reading of the Lord s Prayer by arguing that there are earthly power structures and allegiances that prevent God s kingdom to come on earth as in heaven. Drawing upon his experiences in ministry with marginalized people and his understanding of the Bible, Ekblad calls the church to follow Jesus by seeking its own deliverance from these structures, and to recognize people on the margins as being the most open and available to be agents of transformation. A New Christian Manifesto urges Christians to break down barriers to join Jesus in a movement that includes recruiting, healing, empowering, and sending out to achieve an ultimate victory of the cross.
