A Book Suggestion by Laurie McKiven-Copus, PWJ Ministry Team Member

“Don’t go right, don’t go left; go deeper.” That is the theme of Jim Wallis’ new book, Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus (New York: HarperCollins 2019). 

Wallis’ premise is that our culture and our Christian faith are in crisis because Christians have fallen away from Jesus’ teachings. (“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46). Wallis selects eight central messages of Jesus and devotes a chapter to each: Who is my neighbor, being made in God’s image, the Truth that sets us free, servant leadership, living fearlessly, rendering to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s, making peace, and Christian responsibility to “the least of these”. In each chapter he outlines a crisis, presents Jesus’ teachings that relate to the crisis, and suggests pertinent ways that Christians can obey Jesus’ teachings.

I found this to be a helpful, hopeful book: an inspiration for world-weary Christians to “trust the light of Christ, join the light of Christ, and take the light of Jesus into the world.”
