Generous Orthodoxy and the End Times

Planet Preterist is running this interview of Brian McClaren, who is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors, on the subject of the whole “end times” debate. I especially love Brian’s concluding thoughts:

That would probably be my advice to those seeking “a new kind of Preterism.” Don’t get stuck in small arguments about details, as important as arguments and details may be; step back and catch the big picture of the whole Biblical story – and try to convey the beauty that you see. The good news is truly good, and our world truly needs it!

There is a beautiful story being told in scripture about where God is taking mankind and, ultimately, all of creation. Like Brian, I am more interested in finding ways to get people “into” that story than I am in proving that a particular “end times” view is correct or not.
