"We want you to discover the Bible as its own best commentary. We offer you a way to read the Bible that doesn't require a library or a preacher or a politician or an academic to interpret for you. Once justice is seen as the thread woven into the fabric of biblical history, the whole Bible becomes much clearer. Justice is the issue when God redeems Israel from Pharaoh. Justice is at the heart of the Sinai law and justice is what Israel must show the world as a kingdom of priests. Justice is the measure the Jews failed to meet in their days of power and empire in Jerusalem. It was justice the prophets proclaimed as the way of return during the exile of the Jews in Babylon and it was justice that Jesus incarnated."

“Bell and Golden deliver a tough message the American church needs to hear.”
“Bell is at the forefront of a rethinking of Christianity in America.”
“One of the country’s most influential evangelical pastors.”
-New York Times
“One of the nation’s rock-star-popular young pastors.”
“Rob Bell is one of the hottest names in contemporary evangelical life.”
“This dramatic book is politically charged but not party-bent, bearing a message evangelicals need: that Jesus didn’t come just to save people for heaven someday but to transform his followers and the physical world now.”
“Equal parts prophetic warning and call to action, Jesus Wants to Save Christians exhorts Jesus’ followers to sacrifice their comforts and hear the ‘cry of the oppressed’-the hungry and poor about whom God cares deeply.”
-Grand Rapids Press
“Bell and Golden present a clarion call for a justice emphasis within Christianity and, given the nightmarish developments in the U.S. and the world, it could not have come at a better time!”
