A New Kind of Christianity

Media_httpdanielmrose_gmyvi

I have been reading Brian McLaren’s newest book, A New Kind of Christianity.  It has totally engaged me.  My mind is wrestling through the challenges that he has laid out.  I am about half way through the text and I am very frustrated that he end-noted instead of foot-noted, I have a callous now from marking my place at the end-notes (OK not really, but you get my point). I am going to write ten more posts on the book and in each one I am going to interact with the question that McLaren proposes.

Here’s your chance to look into the future:

  • What is the overarching story line of the Bible?
  • How should the Bible be understood?
  • Is God violent?
  • Who is Jesus and why is he important?
  • What is the gospel?
  • What  do we do about the church?
  • Can we find a way to address human sexuality without fighting about it?
  • Can we find a better way of viewing the future?
  • How should the followers of Jesus relate to people of other religions?
  • How can we translate our quest into action?

These will be my next ten posts.  I hope that you will interact in the comments and that we can have a good and lively conversation about what McLaren is bringing to the table.
