Item Description...
Acknowledgment of the death of the church and the inevitable resurrection is both the premise and the promise of this book.

Publishers Description
Make a new church. That's the challenge Chuck Meyer lays down for readers. He writes that the institutional church we know so well is dying. In fact, it may already be dead. Its structure and theology make no sense today, and haven't for decades. It has ceased to be an adequate instrument for the Living God who refuses to be bound by it, to it, or in it. Dying Church, Living God is a provocative, radical look at the church as it enters the 21st century. "In the midst of all this enormous change, the Church still conducts worship services at hours based around 19th-century milking schedules...There is an incredibly deep spiritual hunger gnawing at people" that Chuck Meyer believes the church must address. Acknowledgement of the death of the church and the inevitable resurrection is both the premise and the promise of this provocative, enlightening book.

Dying Church, Living God .... COURAGEOUS AUTHOR  Mar 29, 2001
This book is an act of PROFOUND COURAGE and SUBLIME FAITH. As the author himself warns, it is not for the faint-hearted or complacent church goer. But if you are spiritual questioning and/or starving then this short, daring, funny book is a cool glass of water in the Sahara. If you are searching for I became a fan of Chuck Meyer in 1999 when I heard him speak at a conference about "A Good Death". Aside from being both eloquent and amusing, his ideas on how we can better prepare for death and honor this passage were riveting. But nothing he said then prepared me for this latest work.... "Dying Church, Living God" is the rare kind of book that's capable of setting off an inner earthquake, but out of the destruction such new GLORY can come. I just read (in an this site review of his book "12 Smooth Stones") that he died in a traffic accident in November 2000. It is a grave loss. I can only believe that he is already busy doing the work of the Holy Spirit elsewhere.
insightful, Humorous  Apr 1, 2000
Chuck Meyer offers a witty and insightful commentary on the current and future states of the Christian Church as it fails to acknowledge, let alone keep pace with, the changes of modernity. Meyer critiques the church not as an embittered outsider casting stones but as an member of the Episcopal clergy who finds honest shortcomings with the institutional church. Filled with humor and Hopeful in tone, the book is straight forward in its language without becoming simplistic. A worth while read for those grappling with the desire to remain an active member a Christian while unable to sincerely concur with orthodox theology.
