Hopeful Directions in Theology and Church - Brian McLaren

Brian McLaren is an author, speaker, activist, and public theologian. A former college English teacher and pastor, Brian is a passionate advocate for “a new kind of Christianity” – just, generous, and working with people of all faiths for the common good. In his 2016 book The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian, Brian convincingly describes how the Christian faith is not dying. Rather, it is embarking on a once-in-an-era spiritual shift.
