A Generous Orthodoxy

Why I Am a Missional, Evangelical, Post/Protestant, Liberal/Conservative, Mystical/Poetic, Biblical,
Living Out Orthodoxy

Why I am a missional, evangelical, post/protestant, liberal/conservative, mystical/poetic, biblical, charismatic/contemplative, fundamentalist/calvinist, anabaptist/anglican, methodist, catholic, green, incarnational, depressed-yet-hopeful, emergent, unfinished Christian

A confession and manifesto from a senior leader in the emerging church movement—A Generous Orthodoxy calls for a radical, Christ-centered orthodoxy of faith and practice in a missional, generous spirit.

Brian McLaren argues for a post-liberal, post-conservative, post-protestant convergence, which will stimulate lively interest and global conversation among thoughtful Christians from all traditions.

In a sweeping exploration of belief, author Brian McLaren takes readers across the landscape of faith, envisioning an orthodoxy that aims for Jesus, is driven by love, and is defined by missional intent. A Generous Orthodoxy rediscovers the mysterious and compelling ways that Jesus can be embraced across the entire Christian horizon. Rather than establishing what is and is not “orthodox,” McLaren walks through the many traditions of faith, bringing to the center a way of life that draws readers closer to Christ and to each other.

Whether they find themselves inside, outside, or somewhere on the fray of Christianity, A Generous Orthodoxy draws readers toward a way of living that looks beyond the “us/them” paradigm to the blessed and ancient paradox of “we.” Ultimately, this book is for anyone seeking to align their religion and life with the person and presence of Christ.

The emergentYS line was created in response to the rising interest of church leaders and growing numbers of Christians regarding the emerging church and culture—and the profound changes the church is now facing. The emergentYS line will address the complex issues of our world’s ongoing cultural shifts and the impact this will have on the local church and ministry.
