Wow. Someday McLaren is going to die, and he will wish he had answers these questions better.

I don't know anything about this guy.

I don't agree with the crux of what he is saying theologically at all. However, his method, and specifically his comments on "heresy" are particularly insightful. I think he is exactly right about how people often refuse to listen to what people are actually communicating to them - and then evaluating that. But, yes, his conclusions from that are dead wrong.

Colin, McLaren is THE leading Emergent writer/teacher in the US. He's written a bunch of books which have grown steadily worse. The Emergent church is pretty good at seeing some of the worst problems in the Church today... but their conclusions and remedies are terrible and unbiblical. And they think that they're the only ones noticing the issues, when most Reformed thinkers already recognized them long ago.
