The Church should be inclusive because God is inclusive. Christianity is inclusive to its core. These are the claims made by this groundbreaking, timely and important book. To its critics, inclusive theology is little more than a capitulation to secular pressures, but it has always been at the heart of all Christian service. Today it is rediscovering its radical, missionary voice and its roots in the biblical values of justice and the transformative power of the kingdom. Inclusivity is not simply about whom the church excludes from its life and ministry on the basis of cultural prejudices at any given point in history. It is about the world we share and the life we lead in common with all humanity. It is a joyful affirmation that we are all created and fulfilled by the love of God, and it challenges us to reject every limitation placed on what God has made. The Inclusive God explores what inclusive theology begins to look like when fleshed out by what matters most in Christianity: creation, revelation, Jesus life, death and resurrection, the church and, above all, the nature of God. Throughout the Gospels, we see Jesus standing alongside the despised and rejected, eventually becoming the despised outsider himself. The Inclusive God asks are we on his side, or not?
