This work gives a radical call for those who claim to follow Jesus to have the courage to be Jesus, and to take up his work in the world. It's much easier to talk and think about being Christian than to actually be a Christian who wades head first into the mess of the world and does the kinds of things that Jesus did. In her newest book, Sara Miles tells the story of what has happened in her attempts to follow Jesus, to feed the hungry, take care of the sick and dying, care for the poor, and love even the most unlovable people who show up in her life. Throughout the gospels Jesus repeatedly makes specific calls to action to his followers, tasks that they will have to perform on the spot-and have to do again and again, when he's gone. They don't always understand, but he insists. You can do this stuff, he tells them. Walk this way. Come on, don't be afraid. This work tells the story of former atheist Sara Miles' adventures as a 'Jesus freak', someone who takes his commands literally in her everyday life and relationships. It offers real stories of giving, mercy, love, forgiveness, service, generosity in the midst of the messy, sometimes difficult and painful life of Miles and her community. It presents a reframing of the Bible's life-sized to-do list, away from abstract theology or doctrinal moralizing and toward really living into the teachings of Jesus. It is written by the popular writer and blogger Sara Miles, author of "Take This Bread". In this book Miles hopes to give readers courage to be Jesus and to take up Jesus' work in the world. It's not up to churches or even to God - this work is up to us.
