    So true Scott, why are so many in the evangelical world scared to question?

    I think Brian has really helped the church out more then folks want to give him and his writing credit for.

    Thanks for bringing this up, Scott.I agree that Brian Mc sometimes throws a few curveballs which really make you think & consider, but that's not a bad thing. What has impressed me - and will stay with me - is the graciousness he has shown when criticism comes his way. Some of the hits he's had to take have been heavy, yet he never appears to respond with anything other than measured thoughtfulless and good grace.

    Scott, what cracks me up is that on The Jesus Creed, McClaren gets called a provocatuer, while Mark Driscoll gets called everything but a menace to civilization. Frankly, I think we're a bit over civilized. It all depends what irritates one the most, I guess...an elusive navel gazing sage or a bombastic young gun. Perspective is everything.

    Being honest, I havent read much of McLaren's stuff yet, I'm partially through A Generous Orthodoxy. For me, even though I dont necessarily agree with everything he says, he makes me question and think about things for myself, which is something I need to do. Therefore, he helps draw me closer to God- which is the whole point after all!!
