The Last Word (Not Likely!)

Just an FYI... Over at Waving or Drowning? I'm going to blog my way through Brian's new book, the afore-mentioned The Last Word and the Word after That. (There's no Chapter 0 this time 'round, but with the intro that'll be 30 posts. It'll be worth checking out just to see if I see it through!)

Rather than do a "review" I'm taking a point or issue from each chapter and relating to it personally. As always, I'd appreciate feedback and conversation via comments (or email). I've set up a Last Word list on my sidebar for easy tracking.

Brian McLaren, S.D.

Jordon posts a bit from an article wherein Brian McLaren defends his words about being called to Christ apart from Christianity. That notion has been discussed a bit here, so I thought it was relevant...

The Last Word and the Word After That

Brian McLaren's latest book, The Last Word and the Word After That: A Tale of Faith, Doubt, and a New Kind of Christianity, is now widely available. This book is the conclusion to A New Kind of Christian trilogy. Read an excerpt chapter online.

Some of us already received an amazon.com pre-order copy during the past week, and someone even got the unreleased manuscript copy on eBay for $280 (proceeds went to charity, part of a fundraising effort to fight hunger in Burundi). Ken Archer of theologicalthinking.com, our fellow conversationalist here, gets a mention in the acknowledgements.
