Currently Reading: Jesus Wants to Save Christians

TITLE: Jesus Wants To Save Christians
AUTHOR: Rob Bell & Don Colden

Here is the blurb from the back:
There is a church in our area that recently added an addition to their building which cost more than $20 million. Our local newspaper ran a front page story not too long ago 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 empty empires and the truth that every body's a priest; it's about oppression, occupation, and what happens when Christians support, animate, and participate in the very things Jesus came to set people free from.

It's about what it means to be a part of the church of Jesus in a world where some people fly planes into building while others pick up groceries in Hummers.
Sounds like really interesting reading!
