Brian McLaren proposes a new faith alternative, one built on "benevolence and solidarity rather than rivalry and hostility," going beyond mere "tolerance" by encouraging vigorous hospitality toward, interest in, and collaboration with "the other." This groundbreaking book demonstrates how a new understanding of key Christian doctrines can end religious rivalry and foster new relationships; how a fresh perspective of Christian and colonial history can replace our lingering "superior" attitudes with empathy and humility; and how by standing in solidarity with "the other," as Jesus did, we can become a force against injustice and inhumanity -- fulfilling the Christian mission like never before.
