A New Kind of Christian recounts a lively and intimate conversation between a pastor and his daughter's high school science teacher, in which they reflect together about faith, doubt, reason, mission, leadership, and spiritual practice in the emerging postmodern world. After many years as a church planter and pastor, author Brian McLaren has found - as more and more Christians are finding - that neither the conservative evangelical nor the liberal mainline stream of Christianity fully expresses his own developing faith. McLaren's engaging story gives voice to this emerging understanding of what it can mean to be a Christian in these dynamic times, offering a constructive vision of what a postmodern Christian might look like. For all who are searching for a deeper life with God and a more honest statement of authentic Christian faith, A New Kind of Christian will open the way for an exciting spiritual adventure into new territory and new ways of believing, belonging, and becoming.
Brian D. McLaren is a speaker, author, activist, and networker exploring the intersection of Christian faith and contemporary life. He has written or co-written over a dozen books, including A New Kind of Christianity, A Generous Orthodoxy, The Secret Message of Jesus, and Everything Must Change.
