Brian McLaren is an author, theologian and church leader. He is at the forefront of the “emerging church” and his books such as “A new Kind of Christian” and “A Generous Orthodoxy” have been influential in the movement’s theology Some describe the emerging church as “post-evangelical” and “post-modern” as it seeks to re-read scripture without the cultural baggage that it believes Western Christendom has often imposed. James White of Alpha and Omega ministries in Arizona sees the theology of the “emerging church” as a departure from orthodoxy, and an attempt to reshape the Gospel and God to fit modern sensibilities.
They discuss post-modernity, Rob Bell’s theology, interacting with other faiths, the atonement, sin and the cross.
