Publisher's Summary

The original gospel proclamation that the Lord of the nations was a crucified Galilean raised from the dead and that salvation was found in vowing allegiance to Jesus of Nazareth unleashed a shock wave that turned the Roman Empire upside down. Early Christianity was subversive and dangerous - dangerous for Christians, and a threat to the keepers of the old order. 

Most of all Christianity was countercultural. But what about contemporary American Christianity? Is it the countercultural way of Jesus or merely a religious endorsement of Americanism? In his provocative audiobook, Postcards From Babylon, Brian Zahnd challenges the listener to see and embrace a daring Jesus-centered Christianity that can again turn the world upside down. 

"In a bold and daring articulation, Brian Zahnd has sketched a Theology of the Cross for our time and place in the United States of the 21st century. He does so in a way that deeply resonates with the primal claims of evangelical theology. He sees that the Gospel is inherently and inescapably countercultural because the God of the Gospel is in particular and passionate solidarity with the left behind." (Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary)

Life changing.

Thank you Brian for a fresh take on consumerism, power and the church. The Church needs to hear this message.
