Conversations on Being a Heretic – Scot McKnight Questions Brian McLaren
This is an excellent interview that Scot McKnight has with Brian McLaren. I appreciate both of these men for different reasons. I think you will find this video enlightening.
The first question that Scot asks Brian is: Brian, it is common for a reader of yours to come away from a book or a chapter, say The Last Word, and The Word After That, or Generous Orthodoxy or your New Kind of Christianity and still wonder what you believe. Most of us detect a provocative ambiguity, while others wonder if there is not deliberate refusal to clarify your views. How would you describe your strategy when addressing polarized issues, why not just come out and tell people what you believe.
Watch the video for Brian’s answer to this question and others, and let me know what you thought about the interview.
