Born Again and Again

Jesus' Call to Radical Transformation

Product Description
Got salvation? What if salvation is not one more thing to acquire but an invitation to radical transformation?

Christians often turn life--and faith--into one big quest for the good life. We expect to "get" a good job, loving spouse, a life of comfort, personal satisfaction--oh, and salvation with a cherry on top. Our acquisitive impulses aren't limited to lattes and designer jeans; Christians in power throughout history have focused on getting people saved, possessing the land, and gaining dominance in government. But what if Christianity isn't about striving for something more, but about renouncing the power and privilege that prevent us from receiving God's abundant life? What if we are called not to treat salvation as one more thing to pursue but as an invitation to conform to Christ?

Born Again and Again is the story of how a religion birthed on the margins of the Roman Empire became functionally the official religion of today's largest military superpower. Pastor and blogger Megan K. Westra takes on the self-serving form of Christianity that has birthed the doctrine of discovery, planet-killing lifestyles, and civil religion. She leads readers into an encounter with the Jesus who gave up everything to come to us and invites us to give up everything to come to him. Conforming to Christ radically reorients our lives, priorities, and faith away from the pursuit of our own interests and toward a pattern of discipleship, setting us free from fear-based consumption and creating new possibilities for connection and belonging within the community of God's people.
