Sawdust on His Shirt

Rediscovering Jesus

Religion was not Jesus' idea. He preferred to rescue prostitutes and show us how to change the world.


CATEGORIZED IN

Religion was not Jesus' idea, it was ours; we humans just cannot resist building gazebos for God. Spurred on by Daniel Dennett's atheistic thoughts about a spirituality stripped of the supernatural, and the Bible story of a rescued prostitute, Sawdust on His Shirt takes a fresh look at Jesus' gospel and his vision for a transformed world. It turns out that Jesus is much more inclusive than has often been supposed. The book challenges the Christian community to rediscover its true purpose and seize a unique opportunity in the early twenty-first century.
There is room in the kingdom of God for skeptical sympathizers as well as prophetic intercessors and for all those who sit somewhere between these extremities of spirituality. People who feel that Jesus may have something important to say to the world but who know they will never be religious, Christians who are seeking to live meaningfully in a secular society and spiritual warriors with a gnawing hunger for God and the fulfillment of his purposes should each find in this book something to inform, entertain and challenge.

Suffering: if God exists, why doesn't he stop it?

John Morris

Don't blame legendary Adam (or Dawkins)! Suffering is unavoidable in God's best possible, free world, where evolution's gains outweigh losses.

Unlike Richard Dawkins, the Contemporary Creed (revised edition) sees no conflict between evolution and God, faith and modern science.
