About this site: Our purpose is to provide one-stop access to writing and talks by activist theologian Ched Myers. A biblical scholar and popular educator, Ched is an author, organizer and advocate who has for 30 years been challenging and supporting Christians to engage in peace and justice work and radical discipleship. To learn more about Ched's work, click on the "Life and Activism" tab at the top of the page.
For information about Ched's writing, speaking and the Bartimaeus Institute, click on the tabs above. If you are new to Ched's work, we invite you to play the videos and audio excerpts below to get a glimpse of his approach.
Ched's work is available for free download or for purchase by clicking on the links on the right. We have made available more than 100 of his articles and books, and new pieces will be added as they are published. We also now have more than a dozen audio downloads, with more to come, and we are working on making video presentations available as well. You can search by product or topic using the right hand column. (Note: If you want audio or video but can't figure out how to download them, let us know and we'll burn them on to a CD or DVD for you.)
Pricing protocol: Any of Ched's articles or audio talks currently available elsewhere on the web can be downloaded on this site at no cost (or we provide the link). All other published material, as well as a number of Ched's unpublished talks and sermons and audio, are available here at what we think is a fair and affordable price. The revenues generated by product purchases go to support the work of Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries. (Note: A number of you have told us that our prices are too low. If this is your view, please make a donation to BCM by using the "Donate" button at right. Donors to BCM will receive our monthly "Partner's Circle E-News" and three resource mailings a year.)
We hope you'll bookmark this site, and return whenever you want to draw upon this rich collection of reflections on scripture and social issues. Thanks for your interest in Ched's work.
