Recommended Reading

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am fairly new to the conversation about Emerging Church, and nowhere remotely close to being an expert.

However, I just came across an online article by Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington, in the latest edition of the Criswell Theological Review, that was very helpful for me in getting a basic overview of some of the issues at stake. I was especially aided by the descriptions he gives of three distinct streams within the "Emerging movement": relevants, reconstructionists, and revisionists.

The article is entitled A Pastoral Perpective on the Emergent Church.

I've read the article. Understanding that all "emergents" are not alike is very helpful. Hey, we can be conservastive evangelicals and emergent at the same time! Proves that getting stuck in jargon can be dangerous--might get painted with a very braod brush!
