Scot McKnight on Brian McLaren's New Book

I have appreciated Scot McKnight's approach to Brian McLaren. He gives him the benefit of the doubt, shows him grace and patience, and looks for the good in his writings. This makes his review of Brian's new book all the more damning. He writes, "Unfortunately, this book lacks the 'generosity' of a genuine orthodoxy, and, frankly, I find little space in it for orthodoxy itself."

I'm going to read the book for myself, but, sadly, this feels like McLaren's last credible defender jumping ship.
