L.V. Eberhard Center, 301 West Fulton Street, GVSU Pew Grand Rapids Campus


Brian D. McLaren is an author, speaker, activist, and public theologian.

Since 9/11 the question has become more and more urgent: How should Christians - members of the worlds largest religion - treat members of other religions? McLaren proposes going far beyond mere tolerance to vigorous hospitality toward, interest in, and collaboration with the other.

After teaching college English, McLaren pastored Cedar Ridge Community Church in the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area and has been active in networking and mentoring church planters and pastors for more than 20 years. He is a popular conference speaker and a frequent guest lecturer for denominational and ecumenical leadership gatherings in the U.S. and abroad.

Tickets are $15 in advance, or $20 at door. For more information, visit the Year of Interfaith Understanding website at, or call 616-331-5702.
