    Dan writes about the emergent church and tells of his own experience in Santa Cruz. There are many good things in the book, but in the end its not all that different in regards to church. Dan calls for a return to "Vintage Christianity." Sounds great, but he doesn't go far enough and doesn't really rethink church. An analogy of what this book does: takes the wheel and puts low-profile tires and mag-rims on it...looks better, but it's still a wheel. In other words Vintage Faith Church is still the system of church-as-we-know-it; like it's been for 1700+ years. To really rethink church I recommend Going To The Root by Christian Smith (now very rare and expensive).

    Excellent. I can't say enough about this book. Kimball has his finger on the pulse of what communicates to the emerging culture. Read this book, but beware, this is not a blueprint of how to do this or that.

    I'm a little disappointed with some of the negative reviews here. This book does nothing to dilute Christian theology, but instead seeks to offer new methodology to meet the needs of younger generations. So many of the titles on the market today are addressed towards builders and boomers, while this book focuses more on busters and bridgers (youngest generations).Kimball doesn't insist that everyone follow his particular methodologies here, he just offers new ideas for previously unreached people.I recommend this book highly, especially to worship planners. The insights it gives are extremely helpful insight for reaching post-modern worshippers These folks are becomingly increasing common in our world today.This volume is simply great!

    An amazing book that actually doesn't just tell church leaders what to do, but how to do it. A great read for anyone interested in making small changes in the way in which we do church so that in 20 years we are relevant and not sacrificing new sacred cows. Read it and make sure you have a highlighter!!

    I read this book and it spoke about the very things I have been feeling, but couldn't explain. Our churches need change if we are serious about reaching emerging generations, and this book gives very practical examples and ideas of how church is changing. I also was pretty amazed at seeing Rick Warren and Brian McLaren both writing forewords in this and commentary.
