Dan Kimball realizes that connecting with postmodern people requires more than a revitalized program or a rejuvenated worship team. For this reason Kimball provides both a helpful exploration of postmodern culture and practical ideas on how churches can reach the postmodern, emerging generations. You might find it helpful to read this book in conjunction with Brian McLaren's A New Kind of Christian.

The Emerging Church's two parts provide a guide on critiquing and engaging today's culture. Part one concentrates on the departure from modernity. This section not only serves as a great primer on postmodern thought, it is also a good critique of the church's ability to reach this emerging culture.

In part two Kimball introduces churches that have successfully tapped into the emerging culture. Without part one, which grounds the reader, church leaders would tend to clone these successes. Kimball offers a clear and reasoned picture of the emerging church based on his deep relationships with postmodern youth and, more importantly, offers creative reflection on a biblical way of ministry, with multiple examples.
