    1. Like his other book, Reading the Bible with the Damned , I found this to be oxygen to my soul It s good academic theology, expressed for the layperson, combined with radical social justice work and a keen eye for religious hypocrisy It expressed well much of my thinking about the dangers of nationalism and allegiance to the nation state, and is one of the few pieces of charismatic theology I ve found to make sense of the idea of territorial spirits and not make the idea sound like something out [...]

    2. This book combines three very disparate strains of Christianity Pentecostalism, academic theology, A New Christian Manifesto is a fascinating combination of academic theology, Pentecostal theology, and a commitment to serving the downtrodden and social justice Bob Ekblad has his hands deep into all three of those areas, and represents each of them well I have rarely seen any two of those covered well by the same person before, and certainly not all three That alone makes the book worth reading.T [...]

    3. What i most appreciate about Bob Ekblad is the insights he shares from people at the margins of our society illegal immigrants, gang members, felons, Central American peasants This book is full of such insights.

    4. I am surprised this book is not talked about often Liberation theology, charismatic exhortations, and plenty of testimonies and wisdom what s there not to love I cannot recommend this book enough for those who want to understand ministry, discipleship, and the Kingdom of God even deeper.

    5. Perhaps one of the most life changing books i ve ever read A bold, fresh, naked look at the biblical gospel.

    6. A decent book written from a liberation theology charismatic perspective The book is tedious in places, but has some good points.
