A new way to follow Jesus that draws on old ways of following him. Prominent progressive writer, speaker, and minister Robin Meyers proposes that the best way for the faithful to recapture the spirit of the early Christian church is to recognize that Jesus-following was - and must be again - subversive in the best sense of the word because the gospel taken seriously turns the world upside down. No matter how the church may organize itself or worship, the defining characteristic of the church of the future will be its Jesus-inspired countercultural witness.

Robin R. Meyers

Robin Meyers is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ (UCC), tenured professor in the philosophy department at Oklahoma City University, syndicated columnist, and award-winning commentator for National Public Radio. He has written four other books: With Ears to Hear: Preaching as self-persuasion (Pilgrim Press, 1993); Morning Sun on a White Piano: Simple pleasures and the sacramental life (Doubleday, 1998), The Virtue in the Vice: Finding seven lively virtues in the seven deadly sins, ((Jossey-Bass, 2008), Why the Christian Right Is Wrong: A minister's manifesto for taking back your faith, your flag, and your future (Jossey-Bass, 2006, expands on an anti-war speech delivered at the University of Oklahoma that became an Internet phenomenon).

'When was the last time you thought of going to church as dangerous? Once we challenged the status quo; now we mostly defend it. The Underground Church tells the story of how we forgot where we came from and why we must recover our subversive roots. Read it if you dare. Become part of the movement if you are daring.' Archbishop Desmond Tutu
