“God once declared everything in the world ‘very good.’ Can you imagine it?” That’s the question behind Lisa Sharon Harper’s book The Very Good Gospel: How everything wrong can be made right. “Through careful exploration of the biblical text, particularly the first three chapters of Genesis… Harper shows us what ‘very good’ can look like today – in real time. Shalom is what God declared. Shalom is what the Kingdom of God looks like. Shalom is when all people are treated equitably and have enough. It’ when families are healed. It’s when churches, schools, and public policies protect human dignity. Shalom is when the image of God is recognized, protected, and cultivated in every single human. It is the vision of God set forth in the Garden and the restoration God desires for every broken relationship. Shalom is the ‘very good’ in the gospel.” (book back cover synopsis)
