      At the end of my last post I asked you what it would take to make the move from Unchristian to Christian, which is just what the authors of the book asked some well-known Christian leaders. Instead of having a reputation for being hypocritical, antihomosexual, judgmental, sheltered, too political, and too focused on making converts these leaders . Allow me to respond to this by first going back to the book. At the beginning of UnChristian, the authors explain why the book uses the term ‘outsiders’ to describe those outside of Christianity as opposed to ‘non-Christians’, for example. Apparently they wished to avoid any terms some may “find offensive”.
