McLaren knows, from personal struggle, that confronting a paradigm can be a scary thing. Rethinking the central messages of faith can feel, at first, like you are abandoning your faith altogether. McLaren helps us walk this path with a sense of growing confidence. He confronts the set of beliefs and priorities that have re-framed and constrained Christianity in the last couple of centuries - frameworks that have moved us away from a focus on love of God and neighbor toward a focus on getting to heaven through correct doctrine. He helps to turn us back to the message of love - and he does so in a way that embodies that love. HIs message is clear (and clearly challenging) but also carefully grounded in scripture and wisdom and is communicated in a way that graciously invites us to join the journey.

Absolutely loved this book. Recently I have been struggling through a number of disturbing questions about my faith. Rather than just giving up and abandoning Christianity altogether, this book has helped me see a noble quest that I can truly and enthusiastically embrace. I still don't know if I will fit in my church or not but at least now I have a gracious and Christ-like framework in which I can proceed. Thanks for writing this book. I feel like I have hope again.
