Listed as one of America's 25 most influential evangelicals by Time Magazine, Brian D. McLaren is a pastor, author, and sometimes controversial innovator among Christian leaders, thinkers, and activists. He is perhaps best known for his key role in the Emergent Church movement.
In his latest book, "The Secret Message of Jesus" (W Publishing Group), McLaren poses multiple questions at the outset that imply the Church may have distorted Jesus' core message. In other words, what if Jesus was right but we have somehow misinterpreted what He said. McLaren contends that Christians need to take a good hard look for answers to these questions even if they alter our faith.
