Groundbreaking author Brian McLaren, voice of the Christian emergent movement and author of the 'New Kind of Christian' series, poses ten controversial questions that could lead to a radical redefinition of the Christian faith. What is the overarching storyline of the Bible?
What is the Gospel?
Why is sexuality such a divisive issue among Christians?
How should followers of Jesus relate to people of other religions?

McLaren's A New Kind of Christianity is a stellar accomplishment, a combination of hard tack fact and unfettered hope, an overview in delightful narrative of the long way of our coming to this time and of the multiform ways of our arriving. 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 The Great Emergence)
Just a few books capture and articulate the imagination, angst, hopes and aspirations of a generation, as Brian did in A New Kind of Christian. Almost ten years later, in A NEW KIND OF CHRISTIANITY, Brian lets us listen in to the key questions and conversations catalysed by his work that have taken place around the world since then. ( Jason Clark, Deep Church)
Some books provide us with information about the world, but every once in a while a book appears that enables us to imagine new, more wonderful worlds. The book you hold in your hand is one of these. ( Peter Rollins, Ikon)
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)
A provocative look at ten controversial questions that could lead to the radical transformation of Christianity
