A new way to follow Jesus that draws on old ways of following HimThe Underground Church proposes that the faithful recapture the spirit of the early church with its emphasis on what Christians do rather than what they believe. Prominent progressive writer, speaker, and minister Robin Meyers proposes that the best way 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 church of the future will be its Jesus–inspired countercultural witness.Debunks commonly held beliefs about the early church and offers a vision for the future rooted in the pastProposes that the church of the future must leave doctrinal tribalism behind and seek a unity of mission insteadArchbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said,"Robin Meyers has spoken truth to power, and the church he loves will never be the same."
