The Challenges and the Future of the Christian Tradition – Brian McLaren

Video with

Brian McLaren describes his journey from Bible based Fundamentalist Christianity to a spirituality that allows questioning of entrenched beliefs and synthesizing Religion, Science and the Arts. In this interview he discuses questions such as: In letting go of entrenched beliefs, we might encounter resistance and fear, how to you guide people in this process?; If the Church is going to survive, what form is it going to take?; What can a religious leader do to support this transition period for the Church?; and What is the front burner question for the people in the Christian tradition today?

Brian D. McLaren (born 1956) is a prominent Christian pastor, author, activist, speaker and leading figure in the emerging church movement. McLaren is also associated with postmodern Christianity and progressive Christianity and is a major figure in post-evangelical thought. He has often been named one of the most influential Christian leaders in America and was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America in 2005. McLaren was also the founding pastor of Cedar Ridge Community Church in Spencerville, Maryland, which he left in 2006 to pursue writing and speaking full-time.
