A New Kind of Christian

12 March, 2004 5:54 PM

Yesterday I was rummaging through my college library looking for books on fasting (writing a paper on it for my Spirituality class) when I found a book that I've been meaning to get my hands upon - Brian McLaren's 'A New Kind of Christian'. At first I was quite surprised to find it there - the library took a step up in my eyes - and then I was quite happy to know I now didn't have to buy myself a copy.

I've been interested to read it for a while now largely due to the ripples that it caused across the emerging church blog scene a year or so back. Its been great to see the impact that its had - but its left me curious.

So - I'm one chapter in. The introduction was great. I found it quite touching to read which surprised me somewhat. You see I feel I've taken some steps towards a 'New kind of Christianity' - yet even from within the place I currently find myself I can relate to some of Brian's depression and feelings about faith, church and God. I'm looking forward to getting further into the book over the weekend.



Oh, man... Hang on to your hat!
