Riassunto: In Post-Rapture Radio, our faithful narrator finds a mysterious box containing the sermons and journal entries of a genuine, unvarnished American character the Reverend Richard Lamblove. The little-known Lamblove-tried and failed-to revolutionize contemporary Christian culture. As his journal entries, cereal box scribblings, and random notes written on paper scraps reveal, Lamblove sees contemporary culture as shallow, overly individualistic, and consumed with the kind of status measured by money, power, and celebrity. And American Evangelicalism-which has been integrated into the culture as a whole-has similar failings. Reverend Lamblove vanished without a trace, but Russell Rathbun has "compiled" his papers into a compelling critique of contemporary faith an antidote to faith-as-usual and a wakeup call for Christians to genuinely respond to the gospel.
Dal retro di copertina:
From Russell Rathbun—the man who has been dubbed the "Maureen Dowd of Preaching" by the Minneapolis City Pages—comes Post-Rapture Radio, a boldly engaging fable. In this postmodern, provocative, and laugh-out-loud funny book, Rathbun explores the often uneasy relationship between authentic faith and its cultural trappings.
Praise For Post-Rapture radio
"Hilarious, passionate, infuriating, revealing, alarming, perplexing,
illuminating. In short, apocalyptic. And definitely required reading for anyone seeking a faithful Christianity in the heart of the American Empire."
—Andy Crouch, columnist, Christianity Today
"Once in a while a book reaches out from the page, grabs me by the scruff of the neck, and says something so pithy, so smart, and irreverently funny that I almost bust a gut laughing. That's what Post-Rapture Radio did to me on several occasions. The fact is, sometimes satire is the best way for us to see our own foibles, and this book is a wonderful antidote to much that ails the church. It's A Confederacy of Dunces for Christians."
—Tony Jones, author, The New Christians: Dispatches from the Emergent Frontier
"Funny and thought-provoking. It challenges the way one thinks about the gospel of Jesus Christ and the church in his name."
—Gordon Gano, singer and songwriter, Violent Femmes
"There are times when the tongue-in-cheek can become a light in the mind—when 'off the wall' becomes the plank of reality. Richard Lamblove was
a driven crusader in his last-ditch stand against the shallowly fervent. I feel the fury in his futilely scribbling a final battle plan on the remnants of cereal boxes and scraps of cardboard. Alas, were it not for Russell Rathbun, we would not know of these lost writings or feel the loss of great truth to the forces of evangelical glitz."
—Calvin Miller,author, A Hunger for the Holy and
Loving God Up Close; professor, Beeson Divinity School
