Taking the ideas raised in Brian McLaren's bestselling A New Kind of Christian, Tony Jones has written an engaging exploration of what a new kind of Christianity looks like. Using "dispatches" on the thought and practice of those within the Emerging Church, he offers an in-depth look at the theology, interpretation of Scripture and the movement's hopeful and life-giving sense of community. Using the depth of theological expertise and broad perspective he has gained as a pastor, writer, and leader within the emergent conversation, Jones invites readers into Emergent thought and offers a new way forward for Christians in a postmodern world. With journalistic narrative as well as authoritative reflection, he provides fascinating examples and first hand stories that mark this new and revitalized incarnation of Christianity.
