McLaren talk canceled by Kentucky Baptists

Objections to McLaren's Generous Orthodoxy
Author-pastor Brian McLaren, recently listed by Time magazine as one of the country’s most influential evangelicals, was removed as a scheduled speaker by a Kentucky (Southern) Baptist evangelism conference after a review of his book A Generous Orthodoxy and his statements on salvation.

McLaren, pastor of Cedar Ridge Community Church in Spencerville, Maryland, is author of several books on evangelism, including A New Kind of Christian, which caused a stir in evangelical circles in 2001. He is regarded as the elder statesman for “emergent” churches, a movement of congregations seeking to connect with people in the postmodern culture.
