Publisher's Description

The "emerging church" movement is perhaps the most significant church trend of our day. The emerging church offers and encourages a new way of doing and being the church. While it largely resonates with an eighteen-to-thirty-four-year-old audience--the first fully postmodern generation--it is also gaining popularity with older Christians and encompasses a broad array of traditional and contemporary churches. Emerging Churches explores this movement and provides insight into its success.

Filled with the latest research and interesting, anecdotal testimonies from those on the cutting edge of ministry, this book provides pastors, church leaders, and interested readers with an insightful glimpse into the thriving churches of today--and tomorrow.

Author Bio

Eddie Gibbs (B.D., London University; D.Min., Fuller Theological Seminary) is the Donald A. McGavran Professor of Church Growth at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is the author of several books, including the critically acclaimed ChurchNext, winner of a Christianity Today book award.

Ryan K. Bolger (Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary) is associate professor of church in contemporary culture at the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Library Journal

Gibbs (ChurchNext) and Bolger, both of Fuller Theological Seminary and who believe that churches need to respond to current social issues to remain viable, here explore the subject of emerging churches. They illustrate the intersection between religion and contemporary society and the ways people relate to this religious community in the United Kingdom and the United States. Chapter topics include identifying with Jesus, transforming secular space, serving with generosity, and leading as a body. Throughout, Gibbs and Bolger portray the importance that emerging churches place on responding to contemporary society. They describe how they function as well as explain their draw by sharing participants' stories, faith journeys, and commitment to their church and include interview testimonies from 49 emerging church leaders, among them Brian McLaren, Doug Pagitt, Karen Ward, and Spencer Burke. Best for libraries where there is interest and an existing collection supporting contemporary religious life.-Naomi Hafter, Baltimore Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Publisher's Weekly

Mention "emerging churches" around a random selection of today's church leaders and half will have no idea what you are talking about while the other half are busy trying to plant one. This book informs the uninitiated while also helping overeager planters understand that these unique communities, as their name implies, emerge gradually, many times without the help of the institutional church. Fuller Seminary researchers Gibbs and Bolger spent five years collecting data in both the U.S. and U.K. and interviewing 50 leaders-most under the age of 40-to uncover important patterns among emerging churches. They emphasize the life of faith as Jesus demonstrated, employ a "going out" attitude toward the world rather than expecting people to "come to" their communities and consider all of life sacred. Also, these communities prefer relationships to meetings, so there may be no set worship gathering time or, indeed, no fixed place to meet. The authors paint emerging churches as attractive, hopeful and ever-evolving, populated by some of the most vibrant, open-minded and service-oriented young Christians. Readers who are attached to "church business as usual" will be shaken up by this book, while those ready for a change will find it energizing. (Dec.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
