Another Brian McLaren Sighting

As usual, Martin E. Marty knows what’s going on.  Apparently, Brian McLaren has begun promoting some sort of “Evolutionary Christianity,” which has something to do with both biological evolution and the historical evolution of Christianity.  As Marty notes, first of all, joining these two issues is a horrible category mistake.  Secondly, McLaren’s shocking revelations regarding the development of doctrine come about two centuries after John Henry Newman’s sytematic reflections on the subject.
