My faith journey is as strange as the pilgrim herself. But I found a friend in Brian McLaren who is not afraid to hold the relevance of the life and death of Jesus well above the issues relevant to contemporary conservative Christians. Love your gay neighbor would be an understated summary, for sure! There is much more to this book, historically and philosophically. I thought it was bloody brilliant. It is thought-provoking and sophisticated but readily understandable as he the foregos pretentious jargon of the average theologian.
