Subversive Jesus

Craig Greenfield

$17.99

Paperback
Also Available In
:

Craig Greenfield lives life a little crazier than most people. He comes from New Zealand but he has lived in some of the most broken (and beautiful) places in the world, including the drug ruled Downtown Eastside inner city of Vancouver, Canada and the slums of Cambodia. Convinced that Jesus places love for the poor and the pursuit of justice as central, Craig Greenfield has sought to follow in Christ's footsteps by living among people at the edges of society for the last fifteen years.

His quest to follow this Subversive Jesus has taken Craig and his young family around the world and back again. This is the story of how Jesus led them to the margins: initiating the Pirates of Justice flash mobs, sharing their home with detoxing crack-addicts, welcoming homeless panhandlers and prostituted women to the dinner table, and ultimately sparking a movement to reach the world's most vulnerable children.

Craig's story is a radical and potentially controversial critique of the status quo too often found in our own lives and even in our churches, but it also offers an inspirational and hopeful vision of another way. While readers may not relocate to a slum or start dining with drug addicts, they will certainly come to view their lives and ministry through a fresh lens, reconsidering how they are uniquely called by Jesus to subversively love the poor and break down systems of injustice in their own sphere of influence.

I need to change
5 stars By Tacito, Nov 02 2016
Craig experience is awesome. His faithfulness to the vision God has given him is a challenge for all of us. Reading the book made me think about my journey of more than 50 years as Christian and to re think how often I have shown the love and mercy of God for  others, with the same passion and intensity. 
Beginning in Cambodia, living in the slums then moving to Canada to live, with his whole family,  in a degraded suburb of Vancouver. Showing God's love for people which nobody cared, "the leftovers" society has left behind, Craig has shown that Jesus' love can transform anyone and make people realise they have value in the sight of God.
Thanks Craig for sharing your story.
It is impossible to read this book and remain the same.
