Brian D. McLaren is an author, speaker, activist, public theologian, and interrogator of 21st Century American Christian expression.

He is the author of many books, including A Generous Orthodoxy (2004), A New Kind of Christianity (2010), The Great Spiritual Migration (2016), Faith After Doubt (2021), and, most recently, Do I Stay Christian? A Guide for the Doubters, the Disappointed, and the Disillusioned (2022). In 2005, Time magazine called him one of the 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America. Learn more about Brian here.
