Wherever the willingness to rethink has been squelched, wherever that sense of quest has been buried under convention and complacency, the Christian faith in all its forms is in trouble. But even there, something is trying to be born. Even now, right here, among us, inside you, inside me. You may feel it as a curiosity, a desire for better answers than you inherited so far. You may experience it as frustration, knowing that there must be more to faith than you currently know. You may know it as hope, hope that God is seeking humble people whose hearts and lives can be the womb of a better future.... In you, your family, your faith community, and circles of friends, among people of peace and faith everywhere, something is trying to be born.

We are in the midst of a paradigm shift in the church. Not since the Reformation five centuries ago have so many Christians come together to ask whether the church is in sync with their deepest beliefs and commitments. These believers range from evangelicals to mainline Protestants to Catholics, and the person who best represents them is author and pastor Brian McLaren.

In this much anticipated book, McLaren examines 10 questions facing today's church - questions about how to articulate the faith itself, the nature of its authority, who God is, whether we have to understand Jesus through only an ancient Greco-Roman lens, what exactly the good news is that the gospel proclaims, how we understand the church and all its varieties, why we are so preoccupied with sex, how we should think of the future and people from other faiths, and the most intimidating question of all: what do we do next? Here you will find a provocative and enticing introduction to the Christian faith of tomorrow.

Listener Opinions

    " McLaren is good at asking questions and drawing others into dialogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by David | 1/29/2014

    " Certainly challenging, not easy or comfortable reading for many but worth deeply reflecting on his thesis that Christianity must change. Our need is to rediscover what it means to follow Jesus and work for the Kingdom rather maintain a broken institution. A necessary book. "

    " This book is not for the faint of heart as it will cause you to rethink everything you have ever held as truth regarding the Bible and God. However, keep in mind that if your "truth" can not with stand scrutinizing questions, is it really Truth? "

    " McLaren is always provocative, but I frequently find that I agree with him. More exactly, I find that Brian has simply given voice to the convictions I find evolving in me, pushing me further along in that thinking-though process. "
