"When was the last time you thought of going to church asdangerous? Once we challenged the status quo; now we mostly defendit. The Underground Church tells the story of how we forgotwhere we came from and why we must recover our subversive roots.Read this book if you dare. Become part of the movement if you aredaring."
—Archbishop Desmond Tutu
"Read this book. Written by a wordsmith, it is a passionate andchallenging call to churches to be liberated from the culturalcaptivity of convention and into the 'underground church.'"
—Marcus Borg, canon theologian, Trinity EpiscopalCathedral, and author, Speaking Christian

—Diana Butler Bass, author, Christianity AfterReligion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New SpiritualAwakening
"As I read Robin Meyers's new book, I felt afresh how subversivethe Christian way of life should be in relation to today's partisanideologies and consumerist assumptions. He depicts a subversive,transformative, and hopeful identity for followers ofChrist—one that I hope will be increasinglycontagious."
—Brian McLaren, author, speaker, activist(www.brianmclaren.net)
"This beautifully written manifesto, grounded in the author'sdeep faith and faithful ministry, is manna for those of us who lovewhat the church is called to be—but who have a lover'squarrel with the way it too often distorts the good news aboutlove, justice, mercy, and care for 'the least of these.' May TheUnderground Church rise up and flower everywhere!"
