For nearly two decades Brian Mclaren has been provoking audiences to think deeply about faith and life through his numerous books, articles, speeches, sermons and songs. Ever since his first book Church On The Other Side Brian has been building a faithful following of progressive, sometimes disgruntle, critical thinking Christians. Now, with his 19th publication, Brian is still building his audience by focusing on the nature of interfaith relations in our world.
Intentionally released on September 11th (the memorial date of NYC Twin Tower attacks) Mclaren's book Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?: Christian Identity in a Multi-Faith World attempts to answer the age old questions: Can you be a committed Christian without having to condemn or convert people of other faiths? And is it possible to affirm other religious traditions without watering down your own?
Whether you are a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindus, atheist, or otherwise, I hope you'll consider reading this book which promises to add a measure of thoughtful civility to the often divisive area of interfaith dialogue.
Compassionately and Critically yours, Billy Michael Honor
