    1. This first appeared on my blog, Jacob s Caf.I received two complimentary audiobooks from christianaudio at the same time Jesus Manifesto reviewed yesterday and Humanitarian Jesus by Christian Buckley and Ryan Dobson I was expecting to like the former than the latter, but that s exactly the opposite of what happened.Humanitarian Jesus was much engaging and legitimately struggling with real life issues that many Christians are facing today As being missional is one of the hot new things for youn [...]

    2. I found this really interesting 50% reflections on the history of Christian social justice and the effectiveness of its implementation and 50% interviews with key leaders of Christian social justice organisations I lost something in the US centric references in the interviews but still got an awful lot out of this book and the string evangelistic focus of social justice.

    3. The cover and title of this book are a bit deceiving I d have to say it s a trap for someone who s looking to validate a social gospel agenda Knowing this is a Moody Publisher s book, I just knew there was to this and I was right Some of the first statements in the intro mention this book is NOT going to talk about this issue inside the church That s a bummer because it s why I needed a book like thisThe book is structured in an uncommon format The first half of the book is a doctrinal examinat [...]

    4. Full review at hbookwi humanitarian jesus bShort review This is a good book that I read right after Jesus Manifesto It is a much better book than Jesus Manifesto but has a lot of overlapping content It is much focused on practical theology and why particular approaches are important, and not just an abstract theology The format was 1 2 theology, 1 2 interviews with Christian leaders that are attempting to live the balance between evangelism and social action ministry

    5. This book will challenge you and make you think Helps establish the need for a balance between evangelism and social justice.
