Evangelicals Engaging Emergent is a first of its kind treatment of the controversial emergent church movement. Drawing from a broad spectrum of evangelical thinkers, this informative, respectful guide examines what "emergent" means, why the movement originated, where it is headed, and where emerging church participants sometimes waver toward relativism. Contributors to this book include Norman Geisler, Darrell Bock, Thom Ranier, and Ed Stetzer.

While plenty of books related to the conversations as well as controversies surrounding the emergent church have surfaced in recent years, no comprehensive evangelical assessment of the movement has been published until now. Evangelicals Engaging Emergent draws from a broad spectrum of conservative evangelicalism to serve as a clear, informative, fair, and respectful guide for those desiring to know what emergent” means, why it originated, where the movement is going, what issues concern emergent believers, and where they sometimes go wrong theologically.Among the dozen contributors are Norman Geisler (A Postmodern View of Scripture”), Darrell Bock (Emergent/Emerging Christologies”), Ed Stetzer (The Emergent/Emerging Church: A Missiological Perspective”), and Daniel Akin (The Emerging Church and Ethical Choices: The Corinthian Matrix”).
