The Eucharist is the firstborn, the church leading the way in exodus. Every time we take part in the Eucharist, we’re reminded that we were each slaves and God rescued us. The church must cling to her memory of the exodus, because if that memory is forgotten, the church may forget the poor, and if the poor are forgotten, the church may forget what it was like to be enslaved.” Rob Bell

 The above is taken from Rob Bells new book “Jesus Wants To Save Christians.” I think I had the book for over a week before I realized that it wasn’t entitled Jesus Wants To Save Christmas, I am sure a few of my friends are still looking for it under that title. Anyway, back to the book. I liked it. I mean I wasn’t taken in by it to the point that I couldn’t put it down, but it was good. It challenged me in my view of God and the church. It opened my eyes to things that I already knew, but couldn’t put into words, Rob is good at doing that.

If you are interested in Church history, if you like Rob Bell and if you are looking for a good book to read that is very green, literally, then this is a book for you. I love the style he wrote it in. There is a lot of space, alot of time to think and reflect while reading and it will leave you understanding your faith in Christ as well as being encouraged in that faith. So in short, I do recommend this book, I really enjoyed it.

 Thanks Rob

    I almost ordered it on amazon the other week, but am curious if it is the same “The church needs to change, look how isolated we are, the world is out there” kind of a book that I have read repeatedly with different titles and authors for the last 3 years. What do you think? Anything new?

  2. The days of everlastingly uncovering reliable opinions relating to this theme have ceased.

    I just want to know when “Jesus Wants to Save Christmas” is going to come out. I would read it! (or watch it if someone did a cool animated Christmas show about it).
