Postcards from Babylon

Zahnd, Brian
The original gospel proclamation that the Lord of the nations was a crucified Galilean raised from the dead, and that salvation was found in vowing allegiance to Jesus of Nazareth, unleashed a shock wave that turned the Roman Empire upside down. Early Christianity was subversive and dangerous--dangerous for Christians and a threat to the keepers of the old order. Most of all Christianity was countercultural. But what about contemporary American Christianity? Is it the countercultural way of Jesus or merely a religious endorsement of Americanism? In this provocative book, Brian Zahnd challenges the reader to see and embrace a daring Jesus-centered Christianity that can again turn the world upside down -- back cover.
