Seeking to Become Whole: Creating a Transformed Church for ALL the Children of God
Seeking to Become Whole: Creating a Transformed Church for All the Children of God approaches the issue of marginalized persons—the other—by interpreting Jesus's parables in the context of progressive Christianity to create a church of love and justice for all God's children.
Our society and church face a historical crisis. White people in America enjoy privilege just by being born. The other—the nonwhite, homosexuals, poor, prisoners, enemies, women, and those of other religions are not like “us.” Jesus's parables and teachings form the heart of our understanding about how we treat the other. Jesus's parables spoke to the everyday problems of his society. Modern-day parables speak to today's problems, and Jesus's teachings guide us to dig deeply for the message he conveys. I submit that this book is particularly relevant to the current racial and ethnic crisis in our country and the continuing oppression of the LGBTQ community and women as they relate to the church.
What can bring reconciliation to the divisions in the church? This book challenges the church and Christians to look deeply into our theology, our witness, and our teachings and seek to reconcile the marginalized in Jesus Christ.
