Revisioning the intersection of Word and world.

Animating communities of discipleship and justice.

Bartimaeus Institute 2024


Mon Feb 19, 5pm to Thu Feb 22, 8 pm. 

We are fully registered

In a return to the original design of the Bartimaeus Institute as an intensive study week, 2024 will focus on two longstanding commitments of BCM:

  • Building capacity for Decolonizing Discipleship
  • Sabbath Economics. 

BKI2024 will be held in Ojai California

Sabbath Economics v1.5

We are delighted to announce the long-awaited re-issue of Ched’s Biblical Vision of Sabbath Economics, which now features the art of colleagues Sarah Holst and Julia Jack Scott! (The text has been slightly edited, updated and expanded, awaiting a more thorough revision when time permits). Chris has turned this popular booklet, which sold thousands of copies since its original publication 2001, into a newly formatted and updated PDF and Ebook formats (EPUB and Kindle). Email us to buy your copy for just US$5.00.

Healing Haunted Histories:

A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization

In their latest book, Healing Haunted Histories: A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization, Elaine Enns and Ched Myers take on the “ghosts” of settler colonialism, Indigenous displacement, and white supremacy that can be found in many of our family histories — if only we have the courage to look for them.

Available NOW - this 400-page book is equal parts:

  • memoir (mostly focusing on Enns’ Mennonite family and community, who endured the Russian Civil War, fled the Soviet aftermath and settled on Indigenous land in Saskatchewan in the 1920s);  
  • social analysis;
  • theological reflection; and
  • workbook for those ready to “do their own work.”
