Took a bit of a break from posting, but I am going to get back in the saddle again.
I just completed reading Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches and I really appreciated the last two authors presented in the book.
If you have not heard of this book it asks 5 "Emergent Church" leaders to write a chapter and also write a short response to each of the other chapters. So there are 5 chapters but there is one main voice with 4 responses in each chapter. It attempts to embody the emergent value of conversation and authenticity (there are some niceties but there are several lines of harsh criticism of theology and even some people).
This book solidified my disdain and inability to connect to Reverend Mark Driscoll. However, I have become new convert to Karen Ward and have become a greater supporter of Doug Pagit.
If you are looking for a look into the emerging voices and the development of "emergent theology" that is accessible and entertaining, I recommend this book.
If I get some time over the next day or so I will upload some notes and highlights I made on the Kindle.
