Bob Ekblad delivers a radical new reading of the Lord's Prayer by arguing that there are earthly power structures and allegiances that prevent God's kingdom from coming "on earth as in heaven." Drawing on his experiences in ministry with marginalized people and his understanding of the Bible, Ekblad calls the church to follow Jesus by seeking its own deliverance from these structures, and to recognize people on the margins as the most receptive to becoming agents of transformation. A New Christian Manifesto urges Christians to break down barriers to join Jesus in a movement that includes recruiting, healing, empowering, and setting out to achieve an ultimate victory of the cross.

Bob Ekblad is Executive Director of Tierra Nueva and The People's Seminary in Burlington, Washington. For ten years, Tierra Nueva has worked with migrant, impoverished, and imprisoned populations in northwestern Washington state. Ekblad is a minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and is known internationally for his courses and workshops on reading the Bible.
