My favourite Christian writer at this stage in Christian history is Brian D. McLaren. He writes many books and all of his books include discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

A group could listen to his podcast either together or separately and then get together either in person or online and discuss their reactions to his “retelling” of the Bible. And in this case, if there are any lingering questions you could just call up the author and challenge him on what he said.
