Aspen_Leon More than 1 year ago
This book is a wonderful exploration of what the coming of Jesus meant to the peoples of Jerusalem some 2000 years ago and what it continues to mean to those of us living in the present day. Kraybill provides a dynamic explanation of the cultural contexts of the actions Jesus took and the words that he said. This opens up a whole new understanding of the enduring Peace that God provides in our lives. This book is an inspiration to those who read it to delve into their congregations and communities to seek the Kingdom.

This book will knock you socks off. It's just the teachings of Jesus, plain and simple, but it explains cultural things that the average Christian would not know, but that are essential to finding Jesus's true meaning in his words. Perfect for a true disciple of Jesus who is tired of the lukewarmeness of mainstream christianity and wants to get out of his or her convenient Lexus cage and follow Christ for real.
