The Underground Church
In Dr. Robin Meyers’ new book The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus, he calls on Christians to recapture the rebellious spirit of Jesus’ first followers. A self-declared unapologetic Christian and unapologetic liberal, Meyers points out that many Christians today are bored during church services or distrusting of organized religion. He reminds readers that the teachings of Jesus challenged the status quo of the time, and Christians today should be willing to do the same. In this funny, insightful, and radical text, Meyers argues that the defining characteristic of the Christian community should be its love of justice and its countercultural compassion for all people.

This is no longer merely church—rather it is a movement that many are aching to join!” – Diana Butler Bass, author, Christianity After Religion: The End of the Church and the Birth of the New Spiritual Awakening
