Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

McLaren uses the metaphor of great religious leaders crossing the road to converse about key matters of faith. Yet he seems to make the strongest case for fostering tolerance of other religions, while implementing Christian doctrine and maintaining Christian identity, through a single personal story. His brother offers to move some furniture into his new apartment and decides to play a practical joke, flooding the bathroom with several hundred balloons. McLaren must enlist the help of a neighbor boy to invite a virtual parade of children into the apartment to carry away the balloons. The resulting friendship between the Christian author and the Muslim boy provides an essential life lesson about loving our neighbors and tolerating their differences. McLaren makes additional valid points about the need to accept others and their various faiths while not compromising on Christian identity, but this particular anecdote leaves by far the most lasting impression. For Christians on the fence about whether to accept others and their faiths or to insist that only Christianity can adequately serve, this book provides important insights. --Susan DeGrane

Review

"...Worth reading, lively and passionate at translating progressive theology into a popular idiom."
Publishers Weekly

"...Important and extraordinarily timely...a soothing balm for the searing pain of our times..."―Huffington Post

"Provocative...Even those who don't agree will be bettered by engaging its ideas."―Relevant Magazine

"This is a major work in every sense of the word--so major, in fact, that it would be impossible to exaggerate either its importance or its worth to the current conversation about religion and religions."―Phyllis Tickle, Lecturer on Religion in America and Author of Emergence Christianity: What it Is, Where it is Going, and Why it Matters

"Helpful, timely, and really, really inspiring."―Rob Bell, author of Love Wins

"This is a book to cherish, to read over and over, a book that sheds light and warmth on one of the most difficult questions of our era."―Eboo Patel, Founder and President, Interfaith Youth Core, Author of Acts of Faith and Sacred Ground

"McLaren offers a renewed and renewing vision of Christianity that will challenge every reader to go deeper into its core Truth and find radical urgency to befriend all God's children. If you are not afraid of having your viewpoint, identity, and complacency challenged - read this, for Love itself is to be found here!"―Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop, The Episcopal Church

"With wisdom and wit, Brian McLaren courageously explores the contours of his Christian faith in light of his experiences with people from other religious communities. His questions and insights are important contributions to the unfolding interfaith discussion in the United States and beyond."―Rabbi Or N. Rose, Director, The Center for Global Judaism, Hebrew College
