A Christian Hybrid

Those of you familiar with the "emerging church" movement and/or the work of my friend Brian McLaren (his latest book can be found below on the YDML bookshelf), will get a kick out of Kyle Potter's post on "Emergent Opus Dei.":

We will swear our loyalty to Brian McLaren (Alan doesn't know this part yet). We will always work for Brian's good, though it will usually be in ways he doesn't know about, and sometimes through methods of which he would never approve. Unless of course I get bored with "BMac," in which case I will pick somebody else. Like Matt Rees or the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The second rule of the Emergent Opus Dei is that you don't talk about the Emergent Opus Dei. Hm, it seems like that should have been the first rule, for some reason.


This, of course, is very tongue-in-cheek, so you should read the whole thing.

Oh boy. . .

I just finished a Christianity and Culture course in which one of our textbooks was "A Generous Orthodoxy" by Brian McLaren. Interesting fellow. Can't say that I agree with him 100% and his entire chapter of pre-emptive apologizing is rather annoying.
