When four religious leaders walk across the road, it's not the beginning of a joke. It's the start of one of the most important conversations in today's world.
Can you be a committed Christian without having to condemn or convert people of other faiths? Is it possible to affirm other religious traditions without watering down your own?
In his most important book yet, widely acclaimed author and speaker Brian McLaren proposes a new faith alternative, one built on "benevolence and solidarity rather than rivalry and hostility". This way of being Christian is strong but doesn't strong-arm anyone, going beyond mere tolerance to vigorous hospitality toward, interest in, and collaboration with the other.
Blending history, narrative, and brilliant insight, McLaren shows readers step-by-step how to reclaim this strong-benevolent faith, challenging us to stop creating barriers in the name of God and learn how affirming other religions can strengthen our commitment to our own. And in doing so, he invites Christians to become more Christ-like than ever before.

"Brilliant remaining of Christian identity"
I have enjoyed several of Brian's books, but this had a ring of truthfulness, as he tackled one of the most important issues for the future of the world - living as a neighbour as a Christian with people of other faiths.
The added bonus was hearing him read the book which added depth, and meaning for me. One of the best audio books I have listened to, to which I will turn again, and highly recommend to religious and non-religious listeners.
Very good book, helpful to understand how we should treat each other no matter what faith we believe
"We must, especially now!"
Thank you for showing the world a New Path to Loving One Another! I am more free to Love now. I've always known this Path and now I have a walking stick and water for the journey!
Hearing this spoke directly to my true heart and what I always felt but didn't know how to say! Bravo and Praise Jesus who is love.
The book was every interesting and if the message is followed it would be a better world and we all would be much happier.
"Did not want an audible book."
Thought I was buying a reading book. Can this be changed to that?
Read, do not listen
Have read most og his books
