“Some books provide us with information about the world, but every once in a while a book appears that enables us to imagine new, more wonderful worlds. [A New Kind of Christianity] is one of these.” —Peter Rollins, Ikon

A New Kind of Christianity is Brian D. McLaren’s much anticipated follow-up to his breakthrough work of the emergent-church movement, A New Kind of Christian. Named by Time magazine as one of America’s top 25 evangelicals, McLaren, along with such contemporaries as N.T. Wright, Jim Wallis, and Rob Bell, is one of the acknowledged leaders of a new generation of Christians who want to update their faith for current times while remaining true to the core message of Jesus. In this controversial and thought-provoking book, McLaren explores the questions that will determine the shape of Christianity for the next 500 years.

Definitely from an "Evangelical" or a bit more of the conservative pool of protestant Christianity, Brian McLaren has listened, worked, talked, and studied with a lot of people of faith, and anyone who wonders if they have enough faith, wonders if the Church they grew up with really has what it takes to grow into the 21st century, or would like to know about the kinds of differences that are growing new life into the "emerging" congregations that are springing up in so many places would enjoy this book.

I game-changing book that will force you to think about the conventional things you've been told about the Christian faith. Written with humility, passion, and abounding insight; A New Kind of Christian will upset you, confuse you, comfort you, and (as the truth often does) set you free.
