A Copernican Revolution
Roughly 1600 years ago, the enemy drew the Western Church into a legal worldview from which it has never recovered. Nothing less than a Copernican-style Revolution will liberate us from this distorted view of reality and return us to the good news first preached by the apostles.
Nearly every aspect of our practical theology has been contaminated or dismantled by a judicial worldview that distorts our perceptions and derails our efforts to discover the life portrayed in the New Testament. Piece by piece, Copernicus 2.0 unmasks the extensive damage brought about by this tragic deception, and recasts the amazing vision of God’s love for us that originally took the world by storm.
One of the most important books you will ever read, Copernicus 2.0 lifts the veil on the spiritual coup that has held the Church captive now for over fifteen centuries.
The time has come for a New Reformation.

“In his latest book, David Takle identifies the issues that have been plaguing the Christian Church for centuries and offers a renewed vision of God’s Kingdom and the kind of relationship God wants with all of humanity. Rooted in this vision is the abundant life Jesus promises through his Gospel message. It’s a message that not only the world needs to hear, but Christians too. If you are longing for something more but can’t quite put your finger on it, do yourself a favor and read this book immediately.”

Just as David Takle gave us a refreshing and more biblical view of Atonement in his book Lamb of God, he has also refreshed and expanded our understanding of Salvation to a Kingdom-of-God-sized worldview. In effect he turns the upside-down and reductionistic traditional view of Salvation into a right-side up recovery of what scripture reveals, about how God’s plan for humanity is that of a Loving Father and not a Stern Judge. And just as Copernicus refashioned views of the solar system, Copernicus 2.0 and the authors cited recapture for Evangelicals, Salvation in light of life centered again upon Jesus.

An intriguing look at how Christianity in the west got off track more than 1600 years ago, when we began to see God through a legal rather than a relational lens. Today a surprising number of people believe they can say a short prayer and get a ticket to heaven without following Jesus, surrendering to him or letting him empower them to do what they cannot do for themselves–become like the Master. Today Christians are not much different than the surrounding culture. Where is the transformation we saw in the early church? Where are those who will follow Jesus with their whole heart? Takle issues an impassioned plea to recognize what is wrong before it is too late. Every Christian leader should ponder this book and consider, What if Takle is right? What if we really do need a Copernican-style revolution to reveal what centuries of legalistic theology have blinded us from seeing, even when it is right in front of us?

Copernicus 2.0 – A Call to Reformation provides a thought-provoking, eye-opening lens to understand the iceberg the church has crashed into, particularly the Western church. The effects of this catastrophic collision continue to ripple into our spiritual life in more ways than we may understand at first glance. This compelling clarion call helps us better understand the problem God’s people face – and the growing ways the church has lost credibility for reasons that were largely preventable. Yet, all is not lost. Solutions anchored in love can rebuild broken bridges and repair faulty foundations. With Copernicus 2.0 we find a map with detailed directions to guide us as we reach our destination that results with enduring character change, effective evangelism, fruitful discipleship and faith expression that reflects the Christ we deeply love.
