Here’s some information about The Great Spiritual Migration: How the world’s largest religion is seeking a better way to be Christian:
People by the millions are migrating out of traditional religion – some into secularism, some into experimental forms of nonreligious spirituality. But even within religious communities, people are on the move, migrating in exciting new directions. Drawing from his work as a pastor, speaker, public theologian, ecumenical networker, and activist, Brian D. McLaren challenges Christians to embark on a great spiritual migration: to seize this dynamic moment as an opportunity for Christian faith to become more just, generous, and joyful – and therefore more truly Christian.The book explores three conversions or spiritual migrations. Spiritually, McLaren advocates a migration from Christian faith defined as a system of beliefs to a love-centered way of life. Theologically, he challenges people to move from defending God as a violent Supreme Being to experiencing and embodying God as the nonviolent Holy Spirit. And missionally, he explores how congregations can move from being institutional outposts of organized religion to networked cells of organizing religion. InThe Great Spiritual Migration, McLaren invites readers to join a movement that can shift the direction of Christian faith to be more in sync with its founder, more life-giving for individual Christians and congregations, and more of a just, generous, and joyful resource for the whole world.
