The church is in disarray. Theologians and commentators speak of the demise of evangelicalism. Are they alarmists? Is Christianity as we know it in the process of dying?

Writer, scholar, teacher, and missionary Dr. David Alan Black thinks that the answer does not lie in the politics of the left or the right. In fact, he doesn't think that Jesus tells us what our politics should be. He doesn't see answers in Christian nationalism. But even further, he sees serious flaws in the very structure of our churches and denominations that prevent us from truly being obedient to the gospel.

The solution lies, not in renewal, revival, or even in reformation, but rather in restoration a restoration of the church organized as Jesus intended it and according to the example provided by the earliest church sources in the New Testament.

To make the church and its members true servants of Jesus Christ again, we need to change our entire paradigm to The Jesus Paradigm.

He has taught New Testament Greek for over 30 years.

He has written or edited more than 20 books, including The Myth of Adolescence, Interpreting the New Testament, It s Still Greek to Me, Linguistics for Students of New Testament Greek, Using New Testament Greek in Ministry, New Testament Textual Criticism, and Why Four Gospels?

He and his wife life on a 123-acre working farm in southern Virginia and are self-supporting missionaries to Ethiopia, which they visit twice each year.

Review:

The Jesus Paradigm is revolutionary, but it is also simple. It is challenging, but it is also relatively easy to read. The reason for these things is that Dr. Black is simply trying to be as biblical as he can. I encourage every Christian to read this book. Even if you do not agree with all the author says, it will cause you to think. --Eric Carpenter, Pastor and Blogger at A Pilgrim's Progress.

The church is set to undergo massive transformations in the coming years and decades. Many great authors have recently been describing desired and/or emerging models; David Alan Black is among them with his newest book, The Jesus Paradigm. Black offers more than the Anabaptist tradition as a model; he offers Jesus as a paradigm. The self-giving love and service that we find in our God who gave his only begotten Son is the foundation from which he seeks to work. Jesus' peace should look completely opposite from Pax Romana or Pax Americana. Jesus' ministry is about service, not power and prestige. The church in our age and all the ages has failed miserably at taking up our cross. As our contemporary church is focusing on self-help and me-centered gospels, Black offers the only faithful alternative the cross of Christ. --Geoffrey Lentz, Pastor and Blogger, GeoffreyLentz.com

This is an excellent book. Well written, accessible, challenging, reasonable for the most part. There is no higher compliment that I can give a book than to say it was challenging to me, made me want to read the Scriptures more diligently, and that I marked pages and quotes liberally. This book did all three. --Arthur Sido, Blogger, The Voice of One Crying Out in Suburbia
