Dave Andrews, author of Compassionate Community Work, has published a new book entitled Plan Be: Be the change you want to see in the world.
Plan Be rescues the 'beatitudes' from their obscurity as a poetic introduction to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and reframes them as a set of radical 'Be-Attitudes' that can enable us to 'be the change we want to see in the world'. According to Dave Andrews, the 'Be-Attitudes' are an original, imaginative and brilliantly do-able set of realistic ideals that introduce us to Jesus' ingenious way of engaging our world of poverty and violence.
Plan Be has an introductory price of AUD 15. Email [email protected] for details on how to obtain a copy.
'Plan Be is a simple practical easy-to-use manual for a do-it-yourself global ethical revolution. In 8 concise punchy chapters Dave Andrews unpacks the hidden dynamics in the 8 Be-Attitudes and shows us how they can help us reshape our personal-political worlds'. Eden.co.uk
'The essence of Jesus' teaching is the Sermon on the Mount. Yet Christians have not taken this seriously. Dave Andrews reminds us that we edit out this teaching at our global peril.' Tim Costello, CEO, World Vision Australia
'Dave Andrews helps us to emancipate the Beatitudes from the too-hard list, and embrace them as prime ingredients in God's recipe for a grace-full revolution.' Steve Bradbury, Micah Network
'Plan Be is a call to live against the tide of violence, vengeance and unforgiveness, in order to nurture into being a world that reflects the radical love and justice of the One who uttered the words of the beatitudes so long ago. This book is to be read, internalised and lived!' Dr Charles Ringma, Theologian.
'Dave Andrews continues to be a major inspiration. (Dave's) important prophetic voice deserves global attention. I think Plan Be will be his most widely-read book yet. It's high time for Plan Be spirituality.' Brian McLaren, author of 'The Secret Message of Jesus' and 'Everything Must Change'
