Eat Pray Love, by Eliszabeth Gilbert

I've just started on Eat Pray and Love, and in the third chapter. The main character writes about her understanding of God and Christianity::

"Culturally, though not theologically, I'm a Christian. I was born a Protestant of the white Anglao-Saxon persuasion. And while I do love the great teacher of peace who was called Jesus, and while I do reserve the right to ask myself in certain trying situations what indeed He would do, I can't swallow that one fixed rule of Christianity insisting that Christi is the only path to God. Strictly speaking then, I cannot call myself a Christian"

I think this is pretty much spot on for the majority of white Anglo-Saxon's. It could easily be a definition for those in the 'Post Church' category. It is one of the huge hurdles which is getting wider which Christianity main denominations need to face.
