Brian McLaren, the man that Time magazine said could find a way for...Christians to march into the future despite their theological differences, has penned his most unsettling and revolutionary book to date.

In The Secret Message of Jesus, McLaren clears away the dust of 2,000 years of the Christian religion to get to the most important questions facing Christendom: Could it be that the church has misunderstood or, in some cases, intentionally distorted Jesus' core message? What if Jesus was right - but right in different ways than we ever realized? What if many of us have carried on a religion that somewhere along the way missed rich and radical treasures hidden in the essential message of Jesus of Nazareth?

McLaren calls on us to look hard, think deeply, and search long with him...even if the answers overturn our conventional ideas, priorities, and practices.

Through the years, I have frequently had an uncomfortable feeling, writes McLaren, that the portrait of Jesus I found in the New Testament didn't fit with the images of Jesus in the church. Out of that nagging discomfort arose this groundbreaking book. He writes: I'd like to share my search with you, and invite you to be a part of it. I don't want to spoil the ending, but I'll let you in on this: the farther I go on this search, the more inspired, moved, challenged, shocked, and motivated I become about the secret message of Jesus.

Brian D. McLaren is an internationally known speaker, a member of the board of directors of Sojourners, and the author of 10 highly acclaimed books on contemporary Christianity, including A New Kind of Christian and A Generous Orthodoxy. Download and start listening now!

    " A paradigm shifter, for sure. Gives the kingdom of here and now the attention that it deserves. The kind of attention that Jesus gave it. Must be pretty important then, huh? "

    " Not exactly the easy read I was looking for before school. It is pretty good and I like a lot of his thinking, a bit to much what seems like rambling at times, but that could just be me wanting to finish it before the text books come. "

    " This is a profound book...I am not yet half way, but it is changing my perspective on this thing with Christ. Would it be possible that this relationship goes much deeper and holds more power than we have ever thought? Like a hidden treasure, wouldn't it be just like Him to keep the greatest things hidden so that only those who really seek with everything in them would find it? How come this man changed all of history and yet 90% of Christians seem like life is not much more than a paycheck and a hope for a new house? Something really challenging to think about.... "
