Summary
Advocates that the teaching of Jesus Christ is not just about performing good works to earn the reward of heaven in the future, but also about practicing charity and justice to transform the world around us
Summary
In The secret message of Jesus, McLaren clears away the dust of two thousand years of the Christian religion to get to the most important questions facing Christendom: Could it be that the church has misunderstood or, in some cases, intentionally distorted Jesus' core message? What if Jesus was right but right in different ways than we ever realized? What if many of us have carried on a religion that somewhere along the way missed rich and radical treasures hidden in the essential message of Jesus of Nazareth?
