I must say I am totally stoked to hear that Brian McLaren is finally coming to Australia! I can't wait! Some of his books, particularly A New Kind of Christian have been incredibly helpful to me and my faith, and helped me to navigate some of the big challenges I've put my faith through.

They helped me to understand a whole heap more about postmodernism, and how it has affected my worldview and our faith.

Anyway, lets just say I'm stoked he's coming out, and will most definitely be there next year. And I'm particularly looking forward to his new book on the Kingdom of God-totally my favourite topic at the moment!

hey digs. just wondering if you could expand a little more on how your view of postmodernism has affected your faith and worldview?

also, the part that "a new kind of christian" had to play in it.

I've not read the view, and would like to study up a bit more on the whole pmodern frame.
