In this book, which is primarily about reconciliation and the fuller meaning of the "Good News," the author traces the history of the American evangelical church and why it stopped participating in works of justice, how that is now beginning to change and the implications of a gospel that is good news both on an individual level and a social/societal level. I loved this book so much, that after I finished it, I read it a second time, slower and taking copious notes. Understanding the history of how the evangelical church, that I have been a part of for most of my life, came to its beliefs and doctrines at the time I entered it, and how a much bigger, more expansive understanding of the Good News can impact not just individuals, but society and societal structures has enlarged my understanding and encouraged my heart on what a Shalom view of the Kingdom of God might look like.
