Soul Graffiti
By Mark Scandrette
272 pages
Publisher: Jossey-Bass (April 20, 2007)

Author: Director and cofounder of ReIMAGINE (a center for spiritual formation in San Francisco), founding member of SEVEN (a monastic community), minister-writer-spiritual teacher for 15 years, and senior-fellow with Emergent Village. (from backflap)

Point of View: Urban, peer learning, intense learning, whole life Christianity, ministry with-to-by.

Organization: The book is divided into four parts. The parts flow from four phrases in Mark 1:14-15.
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel."
Part One explores Jesus as proclaimer. Part Two explores “the time has come.” Part Three explores “the kingdom of God is at hand.” Part Four explores “repent and believe.” The book integrates conversation and praxis throughout.

Intention: To address the question of how to live the kingdom—the way of Jesus—in wholeness and community. He approaches theological questions from a whole life, whole self perspective.

NOTE: I've finally posted that summary I promised.
