Episode 1: Brian McLaren on Becoming a New Kind of Christian and New Kind of Church
To help us set the stage for Season 5, we begin with Brian McLaren! With startling clarity, he lays bare the deeply troubling and the fundamentally beautiful aspects of the church and what it means to be the Body of Christ in the world.
Brian D. McLaren is an author, speaker, activist, and public theologian. A former college English teacher and pastor, he is a passionate advocate for “a new kind of Christianity” – just, generous, and working with people of all faiths for the common good.
