With light enunciation, Lloyd James narrates this (self-proclaimed) unconventional pastor's call for a new kind of Christianity. James captures the author's anger with God for allowing national and international disasters. He deftly delivers McLaren's analysis of the perfect storm that led to what he calls the four foundational crises—in prosperity, equity, security, and spiritual beliefs. McLaren calls the four a "suicide machine" because their focus is destructive instead of service oriented. He says Christians should address these crises but cannot because religion has spiritually failed. In the final analysis, the author replaces the "good news" message of salvation the Bible offers with a bad news message that "good works" are the way to heaven.
