Long DescriptionIn these passionate essays, Tripp York makes the case that both nations and the church require total allegiance and that Christians should choose Christ over state. Greg Boyd, Author, The Myth of a Christian Nation; and Pastor, Woodland Hills Church, says that "The quasi-Christian civic religion of America is like an immunization shot: people get just enough surrogate Christianity to keep them from getting the real thing! Third Way Allegiance is a powerful cure to this widespread diabolic affliction. I don't know any work that so succinctly and effectively helps readers wake up to the way many values and practices of the American empire, and of the American church are opposed to the kingdom Jesus established. This well-written, provocative and insightful little book deserves to be--indeed, needs to be--in the hands of every American who is serious about following Jesus." M. Therese Lysaught, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Theology, Marquette University, observes that "Drawing on a cloud of witnesses, Tripp York juxtaposes the politics and liturgies of Christianity with those of U.S. culture, challenging contemporary Christians to rethink the powers that truly hold their allegiances. Those who allow York's vignette's and questions to confront their assumptions cannot help but find their lives changed." J. Nelson Kraybill, President Emeritus, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary, warns: "Reader beware! This collection of essays may cause insomnia, bold new insight, heated debate, and exuberant bursts of radical discipleship. Tripp York agitates, stimulates, and occasionally pontificates. But if you take Jesus seriously, you'd better listen up. Here is a mother lode of rich ethical reflection, mined by a Christian scholar and teacher with a heart for the church. Third Way Allegiance is perfect as a small group study guide, an adult education elective, or a personal wake-up call to lived faith."

Over the past couple weeks we have gone through and updated the way you can help us keep the site up to date. If you are a registered memeber of the site, you can help and earn lookup credits by validating products and putting things in the right category.

We just added a new page that make it very easy to categorize products that are not already in a category. Visit the UNCATEGORISED PAGE and see if you can help us out. If you know where the product goes it only takes a couple clicks to categorize it. If not, just skip it and check the next one.

You get to see a list of 10 items at a time. Once you have looked at them you can use the link at the bottom to get a new set. Categorize as many or as few items as you like.

If you want to help even more, you can go to the PENDING CHANGES page and check the items that other people have entered into the system. If there is nothing pending on this page, you will automatically be given a list of items that need to be categorised. So if you like, you can use this one page do perform both tasks.

We spend a good deal of time each day performing these tasks ourselves but your help is always appreciated and makes things go a lot faster. We plan on making more improvements over time so feel free to send suggestions.
