Perhaps no recent spiritual movement has spurred such debate as the emergent church. Is it a refreshing resistance to fundamentalist attitudes or a trend that's lacking in sound theology? Is there a middle ground? Writing in a casual, narrative style, Stoner honestly examines this controversial subject, celebrating the movement's achievements throughout while offering a balanced critique.
Emergent theology is raising some of the most provocative and divisive questions in the church today. Filled with humorous insights and challenging ideas, The God Who Smokes imagines a twenty-first-century church where hope hangs with holiness, passion sits next to purity, and compassion can relate to character.
