Tony Jones – “The New Christians” and Playboy

I’ve been re-reading Tony’s excellent new book this week – which tells the story so far of the emergent village in the US. Here’s how Tony introduces me on page 49:

“A decade older than most of the early emergents, a baby boomer, and a suburbanite, McLaren was a bit of a misfit.”

Ah, the story of my life. Fortunately, things took a turn for the better in the next sentence: “… Brian got it.”
Tony’s funniest line – he quotes an anonymous source who says,

“Evangelical pastors have to read A New Kind of Christian wrapped in a Playboy cover.”

Better, I suppose, than the reverse!
