The Good News According to Jesus: A New Kind of Christianity for a New Kind of Christian

In The Good News According to Jesus: A New Kind of Christianity for a New Kind of Christian (published by Smyth and Helwys), Chuck Queen, pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Frankfort, invites readers to consider what he contends is a more inclusive, gracious, and holistic version of Christian faith than is common in traditional Christianity. Focusing mainly on the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) he grapples with such questions as: 

  • What was the message and ministry of Jesus really about?
  • How did Jesus picture and understand God?
  • What are the dynamics of discipleship to Jesus and the elements involved in living in God’s new world (kingdom)?
  • What does it mean to have faith?
  • How might we understand Jesus’ death and resurrection in a way that leads to real personal and communal transformation?
  • How might we understand “Jesus as Judge” in a redemptive, restorative way?  

Award winning author James A. Autry says: “Queen has delivered a thoughtful, intelligent, and scholarly—yet imminently readable—examination of what it can mean, what it can look like, and yes, what it can feel like, to be a Christian in today’s world . . . I’ll go back to this book again and again.”
