Author(s): John Scott Redd
There is a yearning within all of us to be 'whole' - a recognition that we live fragmented lives: striving and failing, believing but doubting, speaking one thing then doing another. We are all righteous sinners, in a battle with ourselves. In this semi-biographical work, Scott Redd examines this fight, discussing how we should be approaching it theologically and practically, in our day-to-day lives.
Filling each chapter with doctrines and biblical texts, Redd uses his theological training to tease out the idea of becoming fully-functioning, love-filled, Christ-devoted people. There is also a focus on using a cross-section of texts and concepts from the Old as well as the New Testament, making this a well-balanced and enlightening discussion. With an engaging, humorous tone, The Wholeness Imperative presents Christ as the unifying force of our hearts and minds - not abstract or unattainable, He is right in front of us, waiting to be embraced.
