Publisher Description

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.

“Paul Michael’s depiction of Pastor Dan Poole as an earnest, struggling pastor in a crisis of faith is delivered in tones of genuine angst. When Poole approaches Neo, his daughter’s high school science teacher, to investigate leaving the pastorate for teaching, an interesting dialogue begins…The dialogue is overflowing with personal theology outside the biblical construct. Michael’s performance is excellent.”

  • “The book’s attention-grabbing format is an effective mode of presenting McLaren’s ideas. Recommended.”

    — Library Journal
  • “Get ready to wake up your spirit and breathe deep. McLaren’s A New Kind of Christian is a street-level, lived excursion into this present millenium—a world where ministry by control, condescension, and smug certainty gives way to incarnational faith.”

    — Sally Morgenthaler, president, SJM Management Company; author of Worship Evangelism
