I have read Finding Faith, ANKOC, Adventures in Missing the Point,
The Story We Find Ourselves In, More Ready Than You Realize, and The
Church On the Other Side (basically all of Brian's books). I have
found his writing to be very consistent in theme and content. I was
struck, however, during Other Side, when I realized that Brian was
doing exactly what he had criticized the modern church for; that is,
suggesting "13 easy ways to reinvent your church". Throughout his
writings he has made the point that the modern church has over
analyzed theology and reduced it to so many formulas to "know" God.
I felt he was betraying his own beliefs and was angry and
disappointed. So angry that I was ready to throw postmodernism out
the door. But I have just finished reading Cedar Ridge Community
Church statement of beliefs and values, and I have to truly say I
still find this "new" kind of Christianity an answer to my searchings
for the truth. And perhaps Brian addressed this paradox in the
introduction that I did not read (shame on me). Thanks for listening.
