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!
One thought on “Consuming Jesus – Beyond Race and Class Divisions in A Consumer Church by Paul Louis Metzger”
Thank you for your gracious remarks about the book, Consuming Jesus.
Perhaps we’ll have opportunity to meet at some point. You mentioned Dr. Perkins in your blog post. He and I have developed a partnership titled, “Drum Majors for Love, Truth and Justice.” You can find out more about it at consumingjesus.org, if you are interested. We held a conference in Portland in late November.
Thank you once again.
All best wishes,
