About the Book

The Christian church is increasingly less relevant and less influential in modern culture. As a result, Christian leaders are no longer important to the dialogue of culture, and the message of Jesus Christ is now presented in a sterile and non-offensive manner. What the church is doing is not working, and a reform is imperative.

Essays Advocating Christ-Centered Reform offers seven individual essays that have been written and compiled to challenge the leaders, the theologians, and the students of the Christian church with some new ideas about some very established traditions. Some of these ideas might be provocative or disruptive, addressing topics related to the essence of the Christian faith, the church and contemporary culture, the nature of worship, and other important theological concerns about the Bible and the traditions of the church.

If we permit Him, then God does intervene in our lives with revelations and inspirations anew each day. Without reform the church will continue to decline. Each of us needs to be inspired to fully commit ourselves to the reform of Jesus and his unchangeable gospel. The desired goal is that these essays might initiate a dialogue in the church about reform.

About the Author

Calvin L. Keeler Sr. is retired and currently divides his time between writing, teaching in a church setting, and being an active minister of visitation for his church, visiting with those who are seriously or terminally ill. Calvin received his bachelor’s degree from Trinity College in 1951 and his master’s degree in mathematics from Harvard University in 1953; he then spent two years in divinity school, with the goal of teaching theology. Family illness required a change, and he spent fifteen years as a professional mathematician before going on to spend twenty-seven years in information processing systems, though his lifelong avocation has always been the study of theology and church work.
