Christian Identity in a Multifaith World

Widely acclaimed author and speaker Brian McLaren asks “Can you be a committed Christian without having to condemn or convert people of other faiths? Is it possible to affirm other religious traditions without watering down your own?”

McLaren proposes a new faith alternative, one built on “benevolence and solidarity rather than rivalry and hostility.” This way of being Christian is strong but doesn’t strong-arm anyone, going beyond mere tolerance to vigorous hospitality toward, interest in, and collaboration with “the other.”

Brian spoke at St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Los Angeles, on a sunny Saturday afternoon in February of 2014, to an audience who drove from all over Southern California to hear him.
