9780615452654: Jesus, in the Face of His Enemies: A Paradigm Shift for Overturning Politics as Usual

This book is in two parts – the story and the text. It is rooted in Matthew’s Gospel and the use of Psalm 8 by Jesus during Passover week. The paradigm shift is this: 1. Jesus loved his religious and political enemies in such a way that they silenced themselves. 2. His means was the level playing field, where he received all their toughest questions, with no restrictions. 3. He did this to remove their hindrance to justice and mercy for all people equally, with a focus on the poor and needy. 4. This level playing field is central to understanding our salvation. What this means is this: 1. If enough Christians strategically advance such a level playing field in the present political climate, those who hate justice and mercy will silence themselves. 2. Then, all people of good will can work toward an honest social order of moral and economic prosperity for all people equally. 3. The religious, political and economic liberty thus produced would be a tangible demonstration of the beauty and truth of the Gospel to a soul weary nation and world.

About the Author:

John Rankin is president of the Theological Education Institute (TEI) and Mars Hill Society. He grew up in an agnostic Unitarian context before he ran into the presence of the living God, and converted to a biblical and evangelical faith in 1967. He holds graduate degrees in theology from Gordon-Conwell and Harvard, and is ordained through the Vineyard Christian Fellowship. He is also founder of the Mars Hill Forum series, through which he engages leading skeptics, unbelievers and others, on theological and political topics. The goal is not to win an argument, but to win a relationship, apart from which the Gospel will not be advanced. He and his wife were married in 1977 and have four grown children. His website is www.johnrankin.org.
