A sad example of "spirituality lite"
June 14, 2013
Our church's youth leader passed this along to me, as he is a huge fan of MacLaren. I can't share his enthusiasm for this book, however, as it is a textbook case of "post-Christian" Christianity, so extremely shallow in its "spirituality" that I'm not sure even Oprah Winfrey's audience would find it appealing. McLaren was formerly an evangelical and apparently has some sort of appeal to other ex-evangelicals, who claim to have been "hurt by the church," which apparently means "the church isn't tailoring its moral teachings to fit the secular world." This is truly a toxic book, one that could do a great deal of spiritual harm.
