In this groundbreaking, inspiring book, Robin R. Meyers, retired senior minister of Oklahoma City's Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ, shows how readers can move from a theology of obedience to one of consequence.  He argues that we need to stop seeing our actions as a means for pleasing a distant God and rediscover how God has empowered us to care for ourselves and the world. Drawing on stories from his decades of active ministry, Meyers captures how the struggles of ordinary people hint at how we can approach faith as a radical act of trust in a God who is all around us, even in our doubts and the moments of life we fear the most.

Robin Meyers is a Christian minister, peace activist, philosophy professor, and writer on progressive Christianity and Western society. He has been a syndicated columnist and an award-winning commentator for National Public Radio and the senior minister of the Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ in Oklahoma City since 1985. He is a distinguished professor of social justice in the philosophy department at Oklahoma City University, where he has taught since 1991.
