Review 1 for The Secret Message of Jesus: Uncovering the Truth That Could Change Everything
Date:October 21, 2006
Although I don't think the message of the Kingdom was all that much of a secret, this is still a thought provoking book -well worth reading. I didn't understand McLaren to mean that Jesus' death and resurrection and God's amazing grace were not Good News; rather, that the Good News is not only for some future time in the sweet bye and bye but also for here and now. The Kingdom is here, not out there somewhere. Jesus said, "The Kingdom is in you." Please don't listen to those who are afraid to think a little. There is nothing here that contradicts salvation by grace. You don't have to agree with everything that is said to benefit from thinking about what is said.
