Messing With Creation...  Mar 25, 2007
...but in a good way, I think. McLaren's ideas in this installment of the trilogy are excellent, shying away from any kind of doctrinal statement but instead placing ideas and thoughts within the wider meta-narrative of Hebrew religion, Judaism, and Christianity. The best move this book makes is placing sexuality, perhaps THE most overlooked part of the human experience in evangelical culture and American culture as a whole, within the framework of creation. McLaren is absolutely right in pointing out that any debate on origins shouldn't start with creation vs. evolution, but should start with sexuality. McLaren's ideas have always been more conversational, and this book follows in that stance of critiquing rational minded religion.

So, why three stars? To put it as nicely as I can, McLaren's prose is underwhelming, his characters are one dimensional, and the plot of this book would have been better written by a team of writers from "General Hospital." Some might disagree with me and would say that McLaren's book is more conversational theology than novel, but I would counter that it would have been better as a strictly conversational theology book and not a novel.

But, its hard to argue with McLaren's intentions and this book is a welcome addition to his end of the theological conversation.
 
The Story I found myself a part of . . .  Mar 8, 2007
In part 2 of the this series we find the characters coming to the realization of no boundaries, unexpected discoveries, and love for all of creation (not just the human creation). What the author brings forth for all who read is not a pointless liberal agenda, or leftist mentality, but rather a perspective of the truth that transcends categories. It is a story about the inclusive rescue by God for all creation, our role in that rescue, and the role of others past, present and future. This book- and series- has challenged some of my earlier notions and categories and is bringing about an emergence of a new perspective. I am gratfeul to the author for writing this book.
 
Certainly interesting adventures  Feb 15, 2007
This book is definately not as helpful as the first book. In this book Brian takes the journey and metaphors a bit too far. He strays a bit too far from the scriptures to make his point. Keep to the first book definately more helpful.
 
It really gets you thinking!  Jan 9, 2007
Wow, what a great way to continue "A New Kind of Christian: A Tale of Two Friends On A Spritual Journey". The story is not only easy to read, but is interesting in it's different aspect of the Story itself.

I would highly recommend reading "A New Kind of Christian" first as it will help you understand the characters more clearly and the background of their ideals and feelings toward the subject.
 
Finding myself in this story  Jan 9, 2007
This book, of which this is the second in a trilogy, comes as a huge relief to many of us who thought we were the only ones asking these questions. The fiction format makes for easy reading, but serious issues are addessed. Thanks Brian
