I’ve been reading D.A. Carson’s new book on the emerging church. When I first heard about it a couple months prior to it coming out, I made some assumptions that it would be a small minded approach, and that it wouldn’t be a fair critique. I’m about a third of the way through now, and while I won’t say that I agree with a lot of what Carson writes, I will say that he does try to be fair, and he is not mean spirited. Oh, and he does make some good points. Especially when it comes to the way many in the emerging church have become postmodern bandwagoners. I don’t particularly like the term “emerging church,” but it’s definitely better than postmodern as a category – postmodern thought may have stimulated many of “us” and resonated with where we were, but it’s as broken as modernity. I’ll keep reading, and post some other thoughts when I get farther into it.
