A New Kind of Christianity

In Books


Our friend Nick Loyd has had a great series of articles about the latest book by Brian McLaren, A New Kind of Christianity. He has had a number of articles and video clips about the book:

A New Kind of Christianity

McLaren Q1: The Narrative Question

McLaren Q2: The Authority of the Bible

If there is any doubt about this book being worth a look, here is a tantalizing quote from Nick’s review:

“I was especially drawn to McLaren’s focus on the supremacy and centrality of Christ in our understanding of God. This is something that I have argued for many times, especially in our discussion of non-violence.
Here is how McLaren explains it:

“The Quaker scholar Elton Trueblood approached the Bible this way. One of Trueblood’s students told me that he often heard his mentor say something like this: “The historic Christian doctrine of the divinity of Christ does not simply mean that Jesus is like God. It is far more radical than that. It means that God is like Jesus.”
