The McLaren Code

In a recent interview with Sojourners, Brian McLaren wondered “why the vision in Dan Brown’s book is more interesting, attractive, and intriguing to these people than the standard vision of Jesus they hear about in church.”

Tim Challies' answer: "That's because they hate the Jesus of the Bible, Brian!"

Adam Omelianchuk has a very thoughtful post in response to some of McLaren's musings, especially about the so-called "Religious Right." I'm glad someone is raising this issue, as McLaren's caricatures--not unlike Andrew Sullivan's war against the "Christianists"--is becoming quite tiresome.
