Radical-Discipleship

"Because we understand the present crisis of empire to have everything to do with the ordering of power, the distribution of wealth, and the global plague of militarism, radical discipleship necessarily approaches the Bible with social, political and economic questions in mind."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus


"The point here [story of the calling of the first disciples] is the following Jesus requires not just assent of the heart, but a fundamental reordering of socio-economic relationships . . . This is not a call 'out' of the world but into an alternative social practice."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus


"In the two decades sinceĀ Binding the Strong Man was published I have lost many dear mentors and friends, some of whom I have named in this edition's acknowledgments. These losses have made me more conscious that this seasons of my life invites me to settle into new places. For one, I am clear that I have a role as a 'keeper of the tradition' for our scattered circles of radical discipleship which remains my true church."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man


"Meeting Ched and reading Binding the Strong Man opened my eyes to the way in which the Gospels have been so completely domesticated for almost 2000 years by the culture of domination. Rather, they embody the radical word of God's liberation that comforts the poor, emboldens the prophets and causes 'the tyrants to tremble sick with fear.'"    - Jeff Dietrich ; Introuction to Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus by Ched Myers
