What is the Gospel?

Can we find a way to address sexuality without fighting about it?

At the opening of the twenty-first century, Christianity in the West is more fractured and beleaguered than ever. Groundbreaking author Brian McLaren suggests that if we are to get beyond doctrinal statements towards the life to the full that Jesus promised us, we need new paradigms for thinking and believing – and he invites us on a radical quest for a new kind of faith.

Using ten key questions, McLaren boldly proposes what a future Christianity could look like. Radical yet orthodox, outspoken yet generous. This is a wise, compassionate book for all who are looking for an authentic, loving faith.

Reviews

Brian's writing is brave and honest, vulnerable and courageous, disturbing and unsettling, reassuring and hopeful. Every now and then you come across a book you've been waiting for. A NEW KIND OF CHRISTIANITY is that book.
Steve Chalke MBE, Founder of Oasis Global
McLaren's A NEW KIND OF CHRISTIANITY is in every way, a dispatch from the front, it is also a love-letter of sorts - a love letter from an affectionate, but seasoned pastor to those who would dare to believe, worship and serve not only now, but also beyond now, into the roiling, churning decades ahead.
Phyllis Tickle, author of <i>The Great Emergence</i>
I managed to miss train stops twice while reading Brian's book! A sure sign it had me gripped. Brian lays out ten questions that a lot of people are asking about Christianity, on things like the Bible, sexuality, Jesus, the gospel, church and the future, and in his relaxed style probes them in a way that often reframes the question. The most important thing about A NEW KIND OF CHRISTIANITY is that it lays open a space where asking questions and talking about them is a good thing to do, and not something to be afraid of; it's a book that shows that asking questions is often accompanied by passionate faith.
