Saving Jesus From The Church – How To Stop Worshiping Christ and Start Following Jesus

“In his least political and most thoughtful book to date, Dr. Robin Meyers finds the common ground in the world of Jesus and lays out a call to action that unites us under a banner of hope and reconciliation.” ~Erick Ebama.  This is not a call to the church to move to the far left or to try something brand new. Rather, it is the recovery of something very old. Saving Jesus from the Church shows us what it means to be a Christian and how to follow Jesus’ teachings today.

Stepping Out With the Sacred: Human Attempts to Engage the Divine

This is a masterful and engaging account of how humans through centuries and cultures have engaged and experienced the divine. Webb includes her own experiences, both personal and observed from travel in fifty countries, as well as centuries of theology, literature and travel writing. She meanders along winding trails, talk over the fence and drink wine with a stranger, literally and figuratively. To engage the larger-than-description Sacred, we need all the stories we can find, even if only to remind us the distance still to go and the limitless (sometimes unsuccessful) journey. As a teacher of world religions and art, and an artist, this will not be a string of anecdotes, but a woven together, reader-friendly, vividly painted, theologically reflective whole.

The Powers That Be

‘The Powers That Be’ is an unusually engaging, credible exploration of nonviolence as the most adequate depiction of what Jesus meant by being peacemakers and reconcilers. By nonviolence, is meant not submissiveness and passivity, but disciplined, effective struggle for justice and peace along the lines of what Gandhi, King, Day, Soelle, and others taught and modeled. Its effectiveness is hinted at by the fact that by far the majority of successful toppling of oppressive regimes in the 20th century were by nonviolent means. Walter Wink offers a new and eye-opening understanding of passages like ‘turn the other cheek, walk the second mile….’ I taught it in college course and was told that student evaluations named it the most popular text of the semester in any subject area.
