Here’s the first pre-release endorsement of An Irreligious Faith: How to Starve Religion and Feed Life.
Try to Imagine this scene. It’s 12 Billion BC. The Father, Son and Spirit are having a beer, planning how Jesus will save the world when The Holy Spirit has an unusual revelation. “Hey you guys I just realized that by 2013 Jesus will be the leader of the worlds largest religion, how cool is that” All joking aside, the way Christians presume that the religion called Christianity was Jesus idea is just as ludicrous. Jesus has no more to do with Christianity than he does with Buddhism or Islam. He does not look at the outward appearance but at the heart. His new social realism is what he calls the Kingdom. Afred Loisy once observed that “Jesus called for the Kingdom and the Church appeared”. If new voices like Glenn Hager’s rise to the surface we may see the coming of the Kingdom sooner than we thought.
