Publisher's Summary

After many years as a successful pastor, Brian McLaren has found, as more and more Christians are finding, that none of the current strains of Christianity fully describes his own faith.

In The Story We Find Ourselves In - the much anticipated sequel to his award-winning book A New Kind of Christian - McLaren captures a new spirit of a relevant Christianity, where traditional divisions and doctrinal differences give way to a focus on God and the story of God's love for this world. If you are searching for a deeper life with God - one that moves beyond the rhetoric of denominational and theological categories - this delightful and inspiring fictional tale will provide a picture of what it could mean to recapture a joyful spiritual life.

Let us reason together

As a Pastor of a very conservative church I was not only challeneged, but encouraged by a new way to reach an educated world.
I think The Father wants us to keep our brains when we come to Him. I love this stuff. God is so BIG.

Continuing the Paradigm Change

This sequel to New Kind of Christian is both deeper and broader. It explains the themes in man's relationship / process with God. Continuation of the work identifying and understanding the post-modern approach to Christianity. Not easy subject material, but worthy.

Open Learning Minds will appreciate this work!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Many of the people I know have walked away from a rigid, inflexible religion that was supposed to bring life, but failed to do so. This book, though not perfect or complete, gets a person thinking far beyond the modern us vs them mentality that is killing beautifully spiritual people.

The Story We Find Ourselves in

The narrator of this book did a great job. He was able to capture an Austrailian accent and in the next breath speak with a Jamaican accent with all the natural inflections. The story however was very disappointing. It seems the author was trying to espouse his interpretation of biblical principles, using this fictional volume as a conveyance. I am a Christian and there were several points with which I felt he twisted what the bible really says in view of his own personal opinions. This was done with just enough truth implanted within as to confuse someone who was really seeking biblical truth. Also there were several social scenes which I found in poor taste. Perhaps it's possible to scan a written copy before committing to this work.
