Publisher's Description

When Brian McLaren began offering an alternative vision of Christian faith and life in books such as A New Kind of Christian and A Generous Orthodoxy, he ignited a firestorm of praise and condemnation that continues to spread across the religious landscape. To some religious conservatives, McLaren is a dangerous rebel without a doctrinally-correct cause. Some fundamentalist websites have even claimed he's in league with the devil and have consigned him to flames.

To others though, Brian is a fresh voice, a welcome antidote to the staleness, superficiality, and negativity of the religious status quo. A wide array of people from Evangelical, Catholic, and Mainline Protestant backgrounds claim that through his books they have begun to rediscover the faith they'd lost or rejected. And around the world, many readers say that he has helped them find-for the first time in their lives-a faith that makes sense and rings true. For many, he articulates the promise of what is being called "emerging Christianity."

In The Secret Message of Jesus you'll find what's at the center of Brian's critique of conventional Christianity, and what's at the heart of his expanding vision. In the process, you'll meet a Jesus who may be altogether new to you, a Jesus who is…

  • Not the crusading conqueror of religious broadcasting;
  • Not the religious mascot of partisan religion;
  • Not heaven's ticket-checker, whose words have been commandeered by the church to include and exclude, judge and stigmatize, pacify and domesticate.

McLaren invites you to discover afresh the transforming message of Jesus-an open invitation to radical change, an enlightening revelation that exposes sham and ignites hope, an epic story that is good news for everyone, whatever their gender, race, class, politics, or religion.

 "Pastor and best-selling author McLaren revisits the gospel material from a fresh-and at times radical-perspective . . . He does an excellent job of capturing Jesus' quiet, revolutionary style."

--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Here McLaren shares his own ferocious journey in pondering the teachings and actions of Jesus. It is McLaren's lack of salesmanship or agenda that creates a refreshing picture of the man from Galilee who changed history."

--Donald Miller, Author of Blue Like Jazz

"In this critical book, Brian challenges us to ask what it would mean to truly live the message of Jesus today, and thus to risk turning everything upside down."

--Jim Wallis, Author of God's Politics and editor of Sojourners

"Compelling, crucial and liberating: a book for those who seek to experience the blessed heat of Christianity at its source."

--Anne Rice, Author of Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt

    There is no biblical basis for this book. If you do read the book arm yourself first with the Bible. To fellow Christians, remember the Bible should be the authority that we judge all teachings by. If doctrine contradicts scripture it is not correct.

    No other book has so engrossed my attention or been so enlightening. Don't think you're getting a DaVinci Code type book. This book asks the reader to take a fresh look at what Jesus was trying to say about His kingdom on earth here and now and His kingdom of the future. I've already finished the author's first book Generous Orthodoxy and am anticipating reading more of his work.

    McClaren has said, that if people are happy being Muslim, or Buddhist or Jewish or atheist, he doesnt think its right to try to shoe-horn them out of their religion into Christianity. In other words, McClaren is in disagreement with Jesus who compels us to make disciples of all nations. The best review I can give of this fellow is to tell Christian brothers and sisters to consult Jude verse 4 in the Bible...it says it all.
