Consuming Jesus – Beyond Race and Class Divisions in A Consumer Church by Paul Louis Metzger
I’m going to have lunch with Paul Metzger — it’s on me Paul.
There are voluminous reviews of this work on-line at Amazon. I am just simply going to say that I truly enjoyed this work…and the heart of a man (Metzger) that resonates the love of Christ on most every page. Listen to Metzger:
“Paul is fond of saying that we settle for so little when God calls us to so much more. We need to settle for more — much more of God’s compassionate embrace of us so that we will extend that same compassion to the least of these in our world.” (p. 180).
This book reminded me of reading John Perkins. However, Metzger approaches many issues from new angles.
I highly recommend this book.
Thank you Paul!
