Abstract:

"A resurgence of the Social Gospel is energizing believers, but what does the Bible say about the role of humanitarian works in the Christian life? As believers, Christians are called to a specific task: to be ministers of God's message of salvation. At the same time, the New Testament manifests nearly every concern of the revitalized Social Gospel. Care for the poor and needy, reconciliation of social and racial divisions, and nurture for the sick and abused{u2014}all can be biblical and Christ-honoring activities. A corrective and a call to action all in one, Humanitarian Jesus shows that evangelism and humanitarian works can and should coexist harmoniously. In an accessible and non-academic style, Christian Buckley and Ryan Dobson outline the biblical case for social and humanitarian investment and engage the topic through interviews with leading Christian thinkers, activists, and humanitarian workers{u2014}including Franklin Graham, Gary Haugen, Ron Sider, Tony Campolo, Francis Chan, Mark Batterson, James Dobson, David Batstone, and more. Dobson and Buckley have a message for believers on either side of the battle lines hardening around today's Social Gospel. To those on the Religious Left, they say: 'Don't forget that Jesus Christ died to save sinners, not to bring about political change.' To those on the Religious Right, they say: 'Don't forget that Jesus spent much of his time helping the sick, the poor, and the needy.'" -- Publisher's description.
