In This Matrix: The Faith of Jesus in the 21st Century, teaches, challenges, illuminates, and encourages, pulling often from historic philosophers and scholars, poets, and modern thinkers to remind readers that Christianity may be both greater than and different from the Faith we commonly receive and practice. Barnabas strikes a chord for critical thinking, for conclusions based on scholarship and reason. He treats the Bible as a valued compendium of the faith experience of some very ancient people-not the literal, true-for-all-time, inerrant Word of God. His is a different Jesus than we commonly hear about. His imagined Church looks and acts thoroughly unlike the institution with which we are familiar. Designed for ease of use and lively conversation, the book features a rich digital supplement (easily available online at no extra cost) containing printable charts, appendices, case studies, weblinks, theological backgrounders, and every chapter of the book (each a printable file).
