 Description: This video study will help groups approach and engage the spiritual, theological, and missional proposals in Brian McLaren's book The Great Spiritual Migration. The four-session DVD features teaching sessions with author Brian McLaren and others in a conversational setting.

McLaren, a leading voice in contemporary religions, argues that – notwithstanding the dire headlines about the demise of faith and drop in church attendance – Christian faith is not dying. Rather, it is embarking on a once-in-an-era spiritual shift. For millions the journey has already begun. drawing from his work as a global activist, pastor and public theologian, McLaren challenges us to stop worrying, waiting and engaging in nostalgia, and instead, embrace the powerful new understandings that are reshaping the church.

Discussing God 5.0 – the God of the inclusive “we,” the video segments are approx-imately 10-12 minutes each and when combined with the introduction and three sec-tions of the book, make an ideal four-week group study, which is supported by dis-cussion questions, scripture, prayer, opening activities with multiple format op-tions. All videos sessions are closed captioned. The DVD includes are:

1) Introduction: A better way to be a Christian (15:03 min) – What you love you protect
2) The Spiritual Migration: From a system of beliefs to a way of life (15:29 min) – defining oneself by love, not a list of beliefs
3) The Theological Migration: Toward a Loving God (16:03 min) – rejecting the image of God as a violent supreme being and embracing the image of God as the renewing spirit at work for the common good
4) The Missional Migration: For the common good (15:13 min) – identifying less with organized religion and more with organizing religion, dedicated to ensur-ing a better future for all of us
Bonus: Promo Video (1:24 min)
