SUBVERSIVE CHRISTIANITY Most recently I finished this short and packed-full work by Brian Walsh. For those of you familiar with Walter Brueggemann's THE PROPHETIC IMAGINATION, this work makes a great companion piece as it sets loose many of Brueggemann's concepts, based on the prophet Jeremiah, in modern Western history and is certainly easier to read though no less devestating. Even for those looking for an introduction to those topics, perhaps with less an eye for Brueggemann's sometimes thick style shoud give this and Walsh's more recent work with Sylvia Keesmaat, COLOSSIANS REMIXED: SUBVERTING THE EMPIRE.

All are available and recommended from my favorite book store Hearts and Minds. These are books for a New Year. These are books that truly call us to celebrate the coming of the Christ in what He enables if we only will grasp for it.

Every one of Brian Walsh's read books have changed my mind and slowly that is seeping through into my life.
