Reviews - What do customers think about I Am Not a Social Activist: Making Jesus the Agenda?

Focus on the purpose of your activism  Feb 5, 2010
Thirty years ago, I read Ron Sider's Rich Christians in An Age of Hunger. He was just the right medicine for the times then, and once again he is just the right medicine for the times. Thirty years ago our nation was coming out of a major social movement (The Age of Acquarius)that promoted love, tolerance, and peace because we were to love our brothers/sisters. Sider pointed out then, that the reason to love our neighbors was that Jesus Christ called us to a sacrificial love of even our enemies. Sider called the evangelical Christian community to loving action to serve those that were of particular concern to Jesus, the poor. Sider said Jesus was the Agenda.

Today, once again our nation is coming to the end of an era marked by the emergence of the evangelical Christian church as a major political force. There is no doubt that evangelical Christians were instrumental in electing thousands of conservative politicians. These conservative politicians saw social action as a useful tool to attain conservative political objectives. Again, Ron Sider shows up with a book that says "I am not a Social Activist", I am a servant of Jesus Christ. Sider points out that the church's business is to promote Jesus' agenda of sacrifice and service, not any political party's agenda. "I am not a Social Activist" is filled with short opinion pieces that Ron has brought together to illustrate the importance of keeping our priorities in order. For the evangelical Christian, life's purpose is to serve those one meets in a self-sacrificing way, because that is what Jesus modeled for his followers. The Samaritan was dispised in his day but the Good Samaritan is the model for the successful christian life. Thanks Ron Sider for the "Heads Up!"
