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.
