Books by Jeremy Myers
- Church is More than Bodies, Bucks, and Bricks – This book considers the idea that church is about so much more than the building on the corner, the people who sit in the pews, or the amount of money that gets given to the budget. We all know this to be true, but in practice, many Christians live exactly the opposite. Read this book to gain insights and concrete ideas about how to move your church away from its reliance upon buildings, crowds, and money.
- The Death and Resurrection of the Church – At a time when many churches are struggling to stay open and many other churches are seeking ways to be relevant and missional in our society and culture, this book argues that the best thing churches can do today is to die. Only after the church dies can it rise again to be all that Jesus desires in this world.
- Put Service Back into the Church Service – This book challenges readers to follow a few simple principles and put a few ideas into practice which will help churches of all types and sizes make serving others the primary emphasis of a church service.
- Book Publishing Instructions – If you want to publish a book, this is the publishing guide you need. It contains nearly 200 pages of detailed step-by-step guides (complete with screen shots) for writing your manuscript, preparing it for publication, and getting it transformed into an eBook for the Kindle, iPad, and Nook, as well as detailed instructions on publishing your book as a paperback.
- Finding Church – This is a compilation of numerous stories from over 30 authors who have sought to follow Jesus in unconventional ways. Some of them have “left” the traditional church to be the church in alternative ways. Others have switched from one church to another. A final group stayed within their own church to help reform it from within.
- The Lie – When billions of people disappear from planet earth, what will government leaders tell the people who remain? This is a a book of Science Fiction dealing the rapture and the Antichrist.
- Why You Have Not Committed the Unforgivable Sin – How to find freedom from the fear of committing the worst of life’s sins.
- Christmas Redemption – Have you ever had a Christian tell you it was wrong to put up Christmas trees, tell your children about Santa, or distribute gifts at Christmas because Christmas is a pagan, idolatrous holiday? They are right: it was a pagan holiday. But the holiday has been redeemed in Jesus Christ and we are free to celebrate it! This book explains more.
- Skeleton Church – What is the bare bones basic definition of the church? Be careful, you might be surprised at how simple the church truly is.
- Adventures in Fishing (for Men) – A satirical look at some of the common evangelism practices in the church today. Written as an allegory, I embark on the quest to become the world’s greatest fisherman – all without catching any fish.
