Evans recovers play as a subversive and even revolutionary activity, a practice of faith that gives life in the midst of structures and authorities that suffocate. In this study, Jesus becomes the political, cultural and religious player who redeems by changing the game so that it no longer excludes, but instead gives life. God creates us for freedom in a field of play. The Spirit summons us toward God's Reign where the freedom of play never ends. Playing, in this view, is hardly frivolous, but the pulse of life itself.
