For Christians everywhere, life is a mission trip: God sends us into our corners of the world to live for his glory. For U.S. Christians, life's mission trip presents many complex challenges, including an unrelenting pull toward affluence, our fervent religious-nationalism, and our deeply embedded individualism. Within today's multifaceted context, God the Real Superpower navigates the potent undertow of our inherited assumptions about missions, pointing U.S. Christians toward constructive perspectives about God, ourselves, and others. God the Real Superpower integrates prophetic Christian living, international Christian identity, and multi-directional missions in a self-probing, multi-faceted way. An analysis of missions that is beyond a simplistic, motivational approach.
