Why it’s dangerous for the Church to become entangled in politics
What if the greatest threat to Christianity in America was American Christianity?
As the Church has become increasingly entangled in the pursuit of politics, the Gospel has become tarnished and often abandoned as the primary focus of the Body of Christ. Jesus Untangled is a prophetic call for the Church to awaken from the “American Dream” and to return to Her first love. Because, as the author powerfully demonstrates in these pages, you can’t convert a culture that has already converted you.
Foreword by Greg Boyd
"Jesus Untangled is a clarion call for Christians to wake up to the many ways we have compromised our distinct calling as citizens of the kingdom of God by becoming entangled with the affairs of the kingdom of the world."
Jesus Untangled is a prophetic calling for the church to explore:
What it means to say "Jesus is Lord" in a practical sense
What the early Christian church believed about entanglement in politics
How ineffective political solutions are to solve the world's problems
What the New Testament says about dividing over politics
Keith Giles discusses what the book is about, his journey out of political entanglement, how the Gospel challenges our politics, what he hopes his readers will experience, and why the book is so timely.
"[Jesus's] message, once so counter-cultural, has been stifled, suffocated, and reduced to a tangled pile of knots on the floor of the American political scene. I can think of no better place for a Christian to begin sorting those out, and reclaiming a message that is still other-worldly after all these years, than with Jesus Untangled."benjamin l. corey, author of undiluted: rediscovering the radical message of jesus
"In Jesus Untangled, Keith Giles has put into words the cries and moans my heart has been making for years. This book could have been called Jesus Unstrangled because Keith is pumping oxygen back into our relationship with Christ and helping release the chokehold of American Churchianity. If your blood runs red, white, and blue while your faith sits meek and mild then I dare you to read this book!."kent c. williamson, emmy-nominated director of by war & by god
"In the first few centuries, the church’s response to patriotism, nationalism, politics, and most importantly, the Kingdom of God, was the exact opposite of the American church’s response today. Keith Giles...makes a powerful case that the early church had it right all along."ROSS ROHDE, AUTHOR OF VIRAL JESUS
"Simply stated, every Kingdom-minded believer will benefit from reading Jesus Untangled. This is especially true in the hyper-sensitized, increasingly polarized and divisive society that we live in today...If you are brave enough to persevere, you will find yourself reevaluating, reassessing and possibly repenting of attitudes and beliefs you have held about what it means to follow Jesus without entanglement."DAN NOTTI, BIBLE TEACHER AND CONFERENCE SPEAKER
