As human beings we are continually seduced by the thought of appearing more impressive and successful in the eyes of those around us. This is how the world in which we live dominates and oppresses so many people, venerating the gods of retail, economics and culture.

In this book, Graham Turner confronts many of our comforting assumptions about the story of God's people. Taking us on a journey through scripture, he draws together familiar texts (and some unpopular passages) to demonstrate that the Old and New Testaments coalesce around two central themes: personal spirituality and social justice.

Following God's call to Abraham and Jesus' call to his disciples, we are called to a higher truth-the Kingdom of God-whose equality, peace and love seems foolish to the world, including, sadly, many Christians. It is, however, the path to freedom.
