If Jesus were still alive and preaching in the United States today, would he be building a huge church structure? Would he be talking about the "trigger" issues, the hot topics that seem to dominate our pulpits? Would he be marching in the streets -- either against or in favor of -- abortion, gay rights, or repealing the death penalty? It is Robert Blair's contention that Jesus Christ would not be politically active or trying to overtly influence the government. He believes Jesus would simply be preaching the same simple gospel that he preached 2,000 years ago. Should not his followers be doing what he would do? Should not it be our primary objective to preach the good news to every person on the planet? By doing that, and by personally assisting the poor, Reverend Blair believes that the followers of Christ would best glorify God.

Hoping that every minister in the United States will "read and heed" this book, Blair believes that laypersons will also benefit from reading The Great Omission. Too often laypersons are wishing to honor God but they receive garbled signals from the church leadership about the church's main purpose. This book will become a lightning rod for change in returning our churches to the biblical message, and suggesting the right methods to tell it.
