Publisher's Summary

A New Kind of Christian's conversation between a pastor and his daughter's high school science teacher reveals that wisdom for life's most pressing spiritual questions can come from the most unlikely sources. This stirring fable captures a new spirit of Christianity - where personal, daily interaction with God is more important than institutional church structures, where faith is more about a way of life than a system of belief, where being authentically good is more important than being doctrinally "right," and where one's direction is more important than one's present location. Brian McLaren's delightful account offers a wise and wondrous approach for revitalizing Christian spiritual life and Christian congregations.

One of a Kind and Challenging.

Brian McLaren invites us on a journey with two friends as they seek to find out what it means to be Christian. It is challenging and thought provoking, and though I do not agree wholeheartedly with the book or its claims it has changed how I view much of what is called christian today and helped me to understand what a new kind of christian might be like. The phrase that catches me is "We are not talking about "the" new kind of Christian or a "better" kind of Christian, but a new kind of Christian." One who has been changed by modernity and seen its flaws, but is also aware that he/she has flaws as well.

Christians beware!

If you are a Christian, serious about pursuing your walk with God and not falling into error, this is a book that you will read with caution and discernment. I found it interesting to read what the 'emerging church' believes in fiction format and found myself agreeing with much of what the author is revealing. However, (and this is a big one) all error contains some truth and the overall message of this book is that Jesus is not the ONLY way to the Father. Read it carefully and compare it to scripture before you make your final decision about what it is teaching.
