Publisher's Description

What are the beliefs of the new movement known as the emerging church? In thought-provoking debate, prominent emerging leaders John Burke, Mark Driscoll, Dan Kimball, Doug Pagitt, and Karen Ward discuss their sometimes controversial views under the editorship of author and educator Robert Webber. Hear what they say about their views of Scripture, Christ, the atonement, other world religions, and other important doctrines, so you can come to your own conclusions about the emerging church.

    This review was written for Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches.
    What this book clarified for me was that the distinction between beliefs (doctrine) and the way in which beliefs are communicated and practiced (style) is an extremely important distinction, and one which is mostly lost on the practitioners of the emerging church.With the sole exception of Mark Driscoll, the contributors dont really want to answer the question, what do you believe? Several of them, in fact, criticized Driscoll for being dogmatic. It would seem that they dont regard any fixed doctrine to be the essential feature of the Christian faith. They would rather envision the faith as a participation in an ongoing personal narrative or conversation. The result is a variety of expressions of pragmatism. Church is about how we do things more than about what things we hold to be true.To the extent these writers do reveal their doctrinal positions, they also reveal that there is no doctrinal unity within the emerging church. Their beliefs range from conservative evangelical to mainline liberal. What this tells us is that the movement is a style movement, not a substance movementthe latest in a long line of Church growth strategies.The problem with this is that the heart of Christianity is a bit of newsan actual truth claim that the eternal Son of God was incarnated, died for the sins of his people, rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and will return. To be a Christian, one must hold these things to be true. Certainly thats not all there is to being a Christian, but thats the centerpiece. If Christ be not raised, then our preaching is vain, and our faith also is vain. The assigned mission of the Church is the proclamation of this message in words and deeds. It has been shown repeatedly in the history of the Church that when we focus our attention on style, we start to forget the substance. This book shows that its happened again in the emerging church.

    This review was written for Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches.
    This book is an interesting read. While I though some of the editors comments were unnecessary. I was a little surprised how some of the contributors justified their view of the important aspects of the gospel. This book highlights the need for all believers to "eat and love the scroll".
