Brian McLaren

It was very good to meet Brian McLaren for the first time at Greenbelt - a lovely and inspiring man. I'd read and enjoyed a couple of his books - 'Generous Orthodoxy' and 'A New Kind of Christian' - a few years back. I was also able to ask him some questions regarding his perception of what's happening in the UK for a piece I'm writing for a new journal being put together by Fresh Expressions. The megaphone pic of Brian was at his first talk at Rise when the electrics failed. Brian's latest book is 'Everything Must Change: Jesus, Global Crisis, and a Revolution of Hope'. Looks very good - and a great title!

"Everything Must Change" is a really excellent read, Ian, as is most of Brian's stuff. Glad you had the chance to talk with him.
