The emerging church movement began with the genuine belief that today's church is falling short in addressing the unique needs of a new generation of people in a credible and meaningful way. At the heart of the movement is the timeless desire for the gospel to be understood and accepted by people in every generation with a language and structure that "postmoderns" can understand. There is concern among some Christian leaders, however, that worse than being a passing fad, the movement may indeed be swimming in dangerous theological waters. This book is a brief, fair, easy-to-read, and easy-to-understand assessment of what can be affirmed and celebrated within the emerging church and what things cause concern. It is a great resource for all pastors, teachers, and Christian leaders who need to become conversant and knowledgeable in this important discussion of how the church will speak effectively to the present generation.Contents1 The emerging church profile 2 Emerging church strengths in reading the times 3 Emerging church analysis of contemporary culture 4 Personal reflections on postmodernism's contribution and challenges 5 Emerging church critique of postmodernism 6 Emerging church weakness illustrated in two significant books 7 Some Biblical passages to help us in our evaluation 8 A Biblical meditation on truth and experience
