A must-read for Christian thinkers
I loved every minute of it even though I was deeply challenged in some of my beliefs and specifically the history of what some people have done in the name of Christianity. I am a doctoral student and this book has been a lifesaver in helping me reconcile my faith with things that I know and agree with in science and history.

Christians May Finally Be Ready To Hear This
I am so grateful to McLaren for the long sojourn he has spent in the wilderness of evangelicalism, in order to think deeply and look carefully at what is been happening for decades. When I first read McLaren many years ago, I was one of those skeptical young pastors who thought that Christianity just needed some tweaks. I was more worried about protecting my job and taking care of my family back then. Now the evidence is undeniable. The way we do church just won’t work anymore, and what the Holy Spirit is doing not only among people on the fringes of Christian faith but in the multiplicity of faith traditions should lead us to realize that a brand new chapter of human understanding of God and one another is upon us. I am profoundly grateful to McLaren for articulating what many of us have been wondering, fearing, crying out for, and despairing that we would ever see. If you love Christianity and the church or are enraged by it right now, this is an important book for you.
