Recommended Reading

Though two decades since its publication, Webber and Clapp offer a vision for a church that looks beyond partisan and nationalist politics toward the goodness of God’s story. They urge Christians to consider the politics of Jesus as their primary launching point in civil discourse.

Ched Myers focuses on a liberation-reading of Mark’s gospel, discussing its inherent political implications and Jesus as the “dramatic reversal” of the status quo. I highly recommend this read for those seeking a progressive take on Jesus’ life and ministry.
