What Would McLaren Do Different?

Brianmaclaren“It was also intended to put the book [Generous Orthodoxy] more in the personal, confessional genre of, say, Annie LaMott’s Traveling Mercies or Plan B (though I am not a fragment of the writer she is). But in spite of the subtitle, I fear that the title as it stands seems to promise something the book doesn’t deliver, namely a comprehensive, scholarly, well-defended systematic theology for a new movement”. Brian McLaren, Becoming Convergent, Part 3

Brian McLaren, who has been under the spotlight for the last 6 months and appeared here a few months ago, discusses himself and his controversial books in “Being Convergent: Part 1, 2 and 3″ [PDF]

I have seen people (myself included) regret putting some thoughts out in a genre too formal when something lighter would have been appropriate – like a blog post, for example.


Andrew Jones launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.

    Andrew, I’m sorry but I have to criticize the way you have presented that picture of Brian McLaren. It is scary. Reminds me of one of those 3-d popout of the screen horror movies. You must not believe in the real Brian, to present such a caricature! 🙂
    Just kidding…
