    There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25 million addition to their building. Our local newspaper ran a front-page story not too long ago about a study revealing that one in five people in our city lives in poverty. This is a book about those two numbers. It's a book about faith and fear, wealth and war, poverty, power, safety, terror, Bibles, bombs, and homeland insecurity, It's about what happens when Christians support, animate, and participate in the very things Jesus came to set people free from.

    What did you love best about Jesus Wants to Save Christians?

    Towards the end of the book, Bell addresses and defines the Eucharist. This interpretation is one I have never heard. I find his investigation deep, enlightening, and challenging. He also gives an awesome definition of the Church and how believers should respond as both a part of the community and as an individual. Bell does a great job summing up what following Christ is all about and in readdressing what "Christianity" should look like. His pithy comments also help move the book along.
