We Make the Road by Walking

A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation and Activation

By Brian D. McLaren

  • Paperback
  • £11.99

A year-long interactive walk through the Bible from widely acclaimed author of A New Kind of Christian Brian McLaren.

For over a decade, author and activist Brian McLaren has been challenging Christian leaders to explore what he calls a new kind of Christianity. In WE MAKE THE ROAD BY WALKING, McLaren offers a basic orientation on what it means to be a new kind of Christian, and how it might look to be alive in the way of Christ.

WE MAKE THE ROAD BY WALKING comes in the form of 52+ sermons, each one easily read aloud in ten to twelve minutes. Working with the framework of the church year, they provide a Genesis-to-Revelation overview of the Bible that can be used (together with a wide array of accompanying resources) in a variety of ways: a year of church services, a year of weekly dinner-dialogue gatherings, a year of classes or online interactions, a series of retreats, or simply a rich reading experience.

This could be an ideal resource for a church to use to travel the Christian year together; or the book you find being shared by a group in the home of someone who, you remember, used to be part of your church. — Revd Martin Wroe, Church Times
We Make the Road by Walking is a year's worth of innovative and refreshing reflections on scripture. . .I liked the accessibility and open-mindedness of McLaren's material. He encourages a participative form of Bible engagement in which new meanings are discovered and old meanings are appreciated afresh. The book is a very flexible resource that can be used individually or in groups, or as part of church services. — Christianity Magazine
We Make the Road by Walking (Hodder) is a year's worth of reflections on the Bible designed to fit with the Church's year ... a rich resource for spiritual growth. — Church of England Newspaper
Whether used on its own or as an enrichment of your other personal or small group reflections, "We Make the Road by Walking" provides excellent stimulation for holy conversation. — The United Methodist Reporter
A new book by Brian McLaren is never dull or predictable; he is a creative and imaginative wordsmith, who likes to stay close to the edge. The journey through the year with McLaren is a stimulating ride ... a beneficial spiritual exercise. — John Woods, Inspire Magazine

Rating: 4/5 Stars

This is arguably McLaren's most practical application of his theological approach. What I liked was his willingness to let people consider each story and wonder about its application for themselves. It isn't pushing a particular agenda, orthodox or unorthodox.

— Engage Magazine
It isn't the kind of book you can start at the beginning and read over a weekend. It is a pilgrimage. A journey. It's a book that if you click with it will sit next to you for the next year and be part of you and your life . . . It made me think in ways I'd not thought before, some things weren't mindblowing, some things made me stop. It's excellent as a starting place for journaling. — Birds Have Nests blog

Seeking Aliveness

Brian D. McLaren
Authors:
Brian D. McLaren

Praise for We Make the Road by Walking: 'innovative and refreshing' - Christianity magazineIn 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. 'An ideal resource' - Church Times
