A New Kind of Christianity - Book Review by Tim Challies

Please follow this link to a book review of Brian McLaren's new book, "A New Kind of Christianity". Unfortunately you will find this non-Christian book in you local Christian book store. Here is an excerpt from the review:

Here, in it’s as if McLaren is screaming “I hate God!” at the top of his lungs. And swarms of Christians are looking at him with admiration and saying, “See how that guy loves God?” I don’t know what McLaren could do to make the situation more clear. In fact, his book is nearly indistinguishable from many of the de-conversion narratives that are all the rage today. Compare it with Bart Ehrman’s God’s Problem and you’ll see many of the same arguments and the same misgivings; you’ll find, though, that Ehrman is at least more honest. He at least has the integrity to walk away from faith altogether rather than reinventing God in his own image.
