Item description for Manifesto: Revolutionary Christianity for a Postmodern World by Olu Robbin-Coker...
Overview A bicultural individual and a self-described "convergent Christian," Olu Robbin-Coker sets forth both a personal statement of belief and a challenge to Christians today, particularly those in the West who are influenced-in good, bad, and neutral ways-by postmodernism. With a balanced use of story, Scripture, and commentary, Robbin-Coker calls for a Christian revolution marked by simple obedience to the person of Christ and begs the church to turn away from misguided religious practices that lead to its ineffectiveness. The book is not so much a social commentary as it is a focused work on God's Word as it applies to concrete situations in the journey of faith undertaken by many. Divided into four sections, each depicting a direction that followers of Christ must look: we must look up to God, down into ourselves, in to the church, and out to the world.

It does what it says on the cover - buy! Nov 22, 2008
Well, I'm wading through 'Manifesto' right now. That gives the impression that it's hard work - it's not. I just have a huge reading list! I'll be right up front, I know the author from my days at university, so some of the fun for me is trying to work out who some of the characters in his stories are. For me so far I was slightly disappointed - but I think that this is because he's covering ground I already know, but for a good many people I think it will be a revelation, so don't be put off by that. Didn't agree with everything (boring life if I did), but mostly he's on the ball. For some thought provoking stuff, easy to read, buy this. It's his personal musings from his journey, and he covers the nature of God, the nature of salvation and discipleship, the church, and missions to the 'postmodern' world. Go buy!
