9780836193961: I Am Not a Social Activist: Making Jesus the Agenda

How can Christians today truly live like Jesus and be more faithful disciples? Ronald J. Sider takes a fervent look at this and other foundational questions, many of which have been the passion of his life. As founder and president of Evangelicals for Social Action, Sider for more than three decades has worked toward a meeting of the minds between two branches of the church vine. In the essays in this book, Sider calls on those in the evangelical stream to become more aware and concerned about poverty, injustice, and peacemaking, while he urges socially active Christians to embrace the great commission and to be more committed to Christ than to political agendas. In I Am Not a Social Activist Sider urges all Christians to make the Incarnate One the center of all we think and do.

Review:

'I'm not a social activist,' claims Ron Sider in his latest book, a collection of his essays just out from Herald Press. How can Christians today truly live like Jesus and be more faithful disciples? Sider takes a fervent look at these and other foundational questions, many of which have been the passion of his life. As founder and president of Evangelicals for Social Action, Sider calls on those in the evangelical stream to become more aware and concerned about poverty, injustice, and peacemaking, while he urges socially active Christians to embrace the great commission and to be more committed to Christ than to political agendas. In I Am Not a Social Activist, Sider urges all Christians to 'make the Incarnate One the center of all we think and do.'
--ePistle



The rediscovery of a social conscience is an encouraging development in evangelicalism today. Ron Sider is one of those clear-minded, balanced evangelicals who combines evangelistic passion and social concern with theological reflection and pas-toral pragmatism. This adds up to a voice worth listening to, and I Am Not a Social Activist, as an introduction to Side's work, may leave you wanting to pursue the issues further by reading another of Sider's more detailed volumes.
--Lee Beach McMaster Divinity College, McMaster Journal of Theology and Ministry
