Item description for To Baghdad and Beyond: How I Got Born Again in Babylon by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove...
'To Baghdad and Beyond' is the story of a young evangelical couple who followed the conviction of their faith into a war zone and discovered an alternative to the violence of empires and the complicity of quietism in the "third way" of Jesus's beloved community. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove writes of his journey from a rural Southern Baptist church to Iraq in a time of war to a Christian community of hospitality in an urban neighborhood. Excited by ways that Christian hope is taking concrete form, Wilson-Hartgrove describes a new monastic movement that is witnessing to a world at war that another way is possible.

To Baghdad & Beyond - insight into a former student Nov 25, 2007
I bought this book due to the fact that a former high school student of mine wrote it. I was intriqued by the title and wanted to see deeper into what Johnathan had been exploring since leaving high school. An easy read with insight into what it truly means for "new disciples" to follow Christ in the model of Tony Compalo. ("what if Jesus really meant what he said?") Insight into the minds and hearts of the Iraqui people as the current "war on terror" was unfolding in its earliest days.
