After many years as a successful pastor, Brian McLaren has found, as more and more Christians are finding, that none of the current strains of Christianity fully describes his own faith. In The Story We Find Ourselves In -- the much anticipated sequel to his award-winning book A New Kind of Christian-- McLaren captures a new spirit of a relevant Christianity, where traditional divisions and doctrinal differences give way to a focus on God and the story of God's love for this world. If you are searching for a deeper life with God-- one that moves beyond the rhetoric of denominational and theological categories-- this delightful and inspiring fictional tale will provide a picture of what it could mean to recapture a joyful spiritual life.

The Story We Find Ourselves In
Book Two in The New Kind of Christian Trilogy
The Story We Find Ourselves In is the sequel to Brian McLaren's award-winning book A New Kind of Christian. His witty and wise characters take on difficult, faith-busting themes, from evolution and evangelism to death and the meaning of life—and reveal that the answers to life's pressing spiritual questions often come from the most unlikely sources. Dan and Neo (and some new characters as well) invite reflection on the story we find ourselves in—that is, the narrative of God's presence and meaning in the world now and in the future.
"McLaren's narrative is bonfire faith: a warm, spacious history of God where wonder and logic dance freely together. Superb."
—Sally Morganthaler, founder, Sacramentis.com
