Product Description

The author of the critically-acclaimed Binding the Strong Man exposes the social and spiritual "stones" that impede us in our development and growth as Christians. "In every age," writes Myers, "disciples despair that the story has ended, only to discover that the stone "has been rolled away," reopening the possibility - and imperative - of following the Way of Jesus." The first part of the book reflects on Peter's denial of Jesus as a central theme of North American theology. Myers investigates how and why first-world Christians seem typically unable or unwilling to struggle for social change. Next Myers turns to the task of repentance and conversion in our historical context. He examines recent experiments by radical discipleship communities, critically evaluating their role in the struggle to deconstruct the culture of oppression. He then calls for a reconstructive discipleship characterized by solidarity with the marginalized, an embrace of social pluralism, and "a theology of re-place-ment" which advocates for sustainable economics, political decentralism, and re-identification with the bioregions in which we live.
