Status-quo Christianity has traded the revolutionary story of Jesus for familiar cliches, pat answers, and domesticated programs. McLaren states, "More and more Christian leaders are beginning to realize that for the millions of young adults who have recently dropped out of church, Christianity is a failed religion...It has focused on 'me' and 'my eternal destiny,' but it has failed to address the dominant societal and global realities of their lifetime..." What he sets forth in this provocative, unsettling work is a "form of Christian faith that is holistic, integral, balanced, that offers good news for both the living and the dying, that speaks of God's grace at work both in this life and the life to come, both to individuals and to societies and the planet as a whole."
