Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

What the "Emergent Church Movement" is all about-and why it matters to the future of Christianity

Following on the questions raised by Brian McLaren in A New Kind of Christian, Tony Jones has written an engaging exploration of what this new kind of Christianity looks like. Writing "dispatches" about the thinking and practices of adventurous Emergent Christians across the country, he offers an in-depth view of this new "third way" of faith-its origins, its theology, and its views of truth, scripture and interpretation, and the Emergent movement's hopeful and life-giving sense of community. With the depth of theological expertise and broad perspective he has gained as a pastor, writer, and leader of the movement, Jones initiates readers into the Emergent conversation and offers a new way forward for Christians in a post-Christian world. With journalistic narrative as well as authoritative reflection, he draws upon on-site research to provide fascinating examples and firsthand stories of who is doing what, where, and why it matters.

    If this is what the emerging church really is then we should all be scared of things to come. The end times are getting closer and closer. I am very afraid for the coming generation with teaching out there like this. Watering down of the truth and and treating Gods word as a story book that has some truth and some fiction. Every christian should read this book for a picture of what is coming and the false teaching coming from the emergent movement.
