Probably the most lasting part of the book for me (despite all the contemporary economics being worthwhile) was the description of first century politics, which was invaluable. Despite Brian (who I see I probably understand less than I thought I did after having read Generous Orthodoxy), I am probably still an Essene: withdrawing, pessimistic about the world, otherworldly. I just can’t see things changing, on a global or even national scale. Even the most hesitant reform ideas, Maybe it would be nice if fewer Americans were violent to each other, meet with such curse-laden tyrannical outbursts, Maybe you’re the secret Stalin sent to destroy the Savior’s swimming pool and destroy us with sin, I mean if it weren’t so common it would be a little hard to believe. I don’t see people as a whole waking up until there’s been some terrible catastrophe I hope that I don’t live to see. People are just too greedy, violent and stubborn; they’re evil. They don’t just prick their finger; they grasp the nettle, to prove they can.

That’s the collective man or entity, incorrigible, but there is beauty in the world too and I don’t believe in cursing at the world or not believing that there’s a sort of captive prince enchained within the sot. It’s just that nobody goes to AA until they feel they have no other options, until the old man cannot continue on anymore. I don’t want to see ‘the end of the (effin’) world’, as they say, and I believe that perhaps I won’t. I think that there’s enough good within our sick system that I don’t believe in giving up and committing crimes, and I’m rooting for the morons crafting the next iPhone. But I don’t put my faith in the collective man or being—governments, elections, markets, trends. Sometimes they’re good or less bad, but they can’t choose to be free. The world is free for you but only if you make it free by asking for Grace. And the world is deluded enough that all purely optional and indeed opportunities-are-limited collaboration and deceit like earning more money than your neighbors so you can get married, “house to house and field to field” romance, is repugnant to me. According to the strength we are given we should serve like a worker and suffer like the poor. So that I do agree with, that I should push back against my isolationist tendencies at their worst and not seek to insulate myself from the world’s pain.

I don't often just leave books with no intention to go back to them, but when I've had to borrow it from the library twice for multiple renewals each time and I still can't get more than 1/2 way through, it's time to put it down.
I started reading because I was curious about the author's views and what he thinks Jesus would say about our current situation. What I've found is that I really don't agree with him much at all. He seems to be taking a very wide view on things, when my impression of Jesus is of a man who deals with individuals, not classes, not people groups, not nations, but each person on their own.
I also didn't care much for the tone of his book, that anyone that believes anything more conservative than him is stuck in some archaic, sad form of Christianity, no matter how many times he said he was dealing in generalities and there were many viewpoints between his own and the one he was countering, I always felt condescended to if I didn't agree with him (which was pretty frequent).
Overall, I'm not going to miss getting to the end, I don't think. I wanted to know what he had to say so that I could have an answer for it, and I do, even it's just an impression. If I need to, I can come back to it. ( )

My favorite section in this excellent Christian teaching tool is the page describing the documentary, "The Corporation", in which an FBI consultant (Dr Robert Hare) appears to describe the characteristics of corporations. The six characteristics are a perfect match for the unique diagnosis in "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" for a PSYCHOPATH. [197] ( )

"How doe the life and teachings of Jesus address the most critical global
problems in our world today? In this book you will accompany Brian around the
world on a search for answers. Along the way you'll experience intrigue, alarm,
challenge, insight, and hope. You'll get a fresh and provocative vision of
Jesus and his teachings. And you'll see how his core message can infuse us with
purpose and passion to address the economic, environmental, military,

From the publisher:
How can the life and teachings of Jesus impact the most critical global problems in our world today?

For the last twenty years, Brian McLaren has been unable to escape this life-shaping question. In Everything Must Change, he unveils a fresh and provocative vision of Jesus and his teachings, and how his message of hope can ignite purpose and passion to change the economic, environmental, military, political, and social crises that have overtaken our world.

The Good News is more than a ticket to heaven. It is an invitation to personal change and a radical challenge for global transformation. Imagine what would happen:

if we believed that God's will really could be done on earth and not just in heaven
if the world's leading nations spent less on weapons and more on making peace, alleviating poverty, and caring for creation
if a renewed understanding of Jesus and his message sparked a profound spiritual awakening in a global movement of faith, hope, and love

If you are hungry for a fresh vision of what it means to be a person of faith, Everything Must Change shows what would happen when Jesus' Good News collides with a world in need.

If you're like some people (including my wife and a few friends who have been nervous about this book since they heard what I was writing about), you may already feel a little skeptical and suspicious, having only read the title and subtitle of this book.
