Plan Be rescues the 'Be-Attitudes' from obscurity and uses them for 'Plan Be' - 'being the change we want to see in the world'. 'Plan Be' is a simple practical easy-to-use manual for a do-it-yourself global ethical revolution. In this book Dave Andrews 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 we can use as a life-changing framework for 'being the change we want to see in the world'. In 8 concise punchy chapters Dave unpacks the hidden dynamics in the 8 Be-Attitudes and shows us how they can help us reshape our personal-political worlds.
'With gentle forcefulness 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, TEAR Australia and Micah Network
'The essence of Jesus teaching is the Sermon on the mount. Yet Christians have not taken this seriously. Dave Andrew's reminds us that we edit out this teaching at our global peril.'
Tim Costello, CEO, World Vision Australia
'The Anabaptists, the Radical wing of the Reformation, believed that the Sermon on the Mount was not simply a set of ideals for a brutal world, but a way of life in following Christ and his peaceable kingdom that could be lived. This challenging reader seeks to carry forward this vision into the 21st century. It is a personal and communal call to live against the tide of violence, retaliation, vengeance and unforgiveness, in order to nurture into being a world that reflects the radical grace, gentleness, love and justice of the One who uttered these words so long ago. This book is to be read, internalised and LIVED!'
Dr Charles Ringma Emeritus Professor Mission Studies, Regent College, Canada.
'When I met Dave Andrews a few years ago, I could feel the fire burning in him. Then I heard him speak. Then I read his books. Ever since, he has been and continues to be a major inspiration for my life and work. I think Plan Be will be his most widely-read book yet, and will introduce a new readership to this important prophetic voice - one who deserves global attention. Plan A (Aggressive, Arrogant, Angry, or Apathetic Religion) has been tried and found disgusting. It's high time for Plan Be spirituality.'
