Is the mainline church as we know it dying? Does it need to be fundamentally reconstituted, not just cosmetically altered? Imagine being part of a church that is biblically responsible, intellectually honest, emotionally satisfying and socially significant. Would the world find us strange and subversive—even dangerous? What kind of God does Jesus reveal? What is the proper object of our worship, and what would it take to make Christianity compelling, even irresistible, again?
These are the questions that Robin Meyers has been asking for more than 20 years as the pastor of Mayflower Congregational Church in Oklahoma City. He says “I come to these questions as a pastor which is unusual for a member of the Jesus Seminar--determined to use the best biblical scholarship to bring intellectual honesty to the pulpit and the voice of the historical Jesus to ministry. People expect my kind of church to have a chance in Seattle or Berkeley or New Haven, but not in Oklahoma City.” A megachurch pastor recently called Mayflower the Church of the Devil and a letter to the editor dubbed it the House of Heresy.
Meyers is a professor in the philosophy department at Oklahoma City University, a syndicated columnist, and an award winning commentator for NPR. He has appeared on Dateline and ABC’s World News Tonight and writes regularly for The Christian Century. He is the author of five books, including With Ears to Hear: Preaching as Self-Persuasion, Morning Sun on a White Piano: Simple Pleasures and the Sacramental Life, endorsed by Bill Moyers, Why the Christian Right is Wrong: A Minister’s Manifesto for Taking Back Your Faith, Your Flag, and Your Future and his latest, Saving Jesus From the Church.
"With crisply prophetic joy, Meyers calls seekers and believers alike to leave belief about God behind in favor of becoming imitators of Jesus. We can save Jesus from the church, and in doing so, recreate faith communities freed from hypocrisy and filled with hope." Diana Butler Bass, author of Christianity for the Rest of Us
