In his 2014 book We Make the Road by Walking Brian McLaren gave a basic orientation on what it means to be ‘a new kind of Christian’ through 52 sermons, working within the framework of the church year and providing a Genesis-Revelation overview of the Bible. It was designed to be used in church services and small groups, and was praised by New Testament scholar Paula Gooder and enthusiastically adopted by many.
Seeking Aliveness is a repurposing of this material for use by individuals, breaking up the text into daily devotions, along with the original suggested Bible readings and with a prayer, thought or action point for each day. Brian’s original writing is transformed beautifully into a daily read, for admirers of the original book as well as a new audience.
