Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"An absolutely superb treatment. Dr. Bohannon's critique and evaluation is thorough, even exhaustive! It is also judicious and compelling. This book is a must-read for those who care about the importance of theological conviction and its impact on the contemporary ministry of the Word. Not all who read this work will agree with his conclusions (I do!), but all will be forced to carefully consider what he says."
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

From the Back Cover

"If you're passionate about preaching and want to discern what preaching should look like in emerging contexts, you'll want to read this book. Bohannon provides the reader an exhaustive and insightful look into the preaching ministry of four of the emerging church movement's most colorful and sometimes controversial leaders. There are things to affirm and others to reject, and now, thanks to Bohannon, we have a helpful tool to help us discern the difference between the two."
Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research

Format: Paperback
As a pastor, I found this book to be extremely informative and helpful. Before reading it, my familiarity with the emerging church was minimal. After finishing Bohannon's work, I felt that I was immensely more informed about the particulars of this movement (or "conversation"). I received a much better understanding of the legitimate challenge of the emerging church to engage the post-modern culture. However, Bohannon also fairly addressed it's dangers in regards to it's shift away, in many instances, from orthodox biblical doctrine.

I was surprised to learn of the wide variance in regards to the beliefs and preaching methods of the four key preachers within the emerging church. Bohannon's insights were precise and thoroughly supported by Scripture and research. His treatment of these four key personalities associated with the emerging church was extremely fair. Overall, I would consider his work as a starting point to understanding the heart behind the emerging church and the voices which make it what it is today.

John Bohannon has written a great resource. There are so many shrill voices on both sides of the camp over the beliefs and message of the emerging church. By documenting the published theology, message and methods of four of the movement's leaders; Brian McLaren, Doug Pagitt, Dan Kimball and Mark Driscoll, Bohannon gives us a clear understanding of where they stand. He then fairly and evenly critiques each against the standard of the gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in scripture.

I came away having a much better grasp of the emerging church and the message of some of it's leaders. I was surprised to learn how much difference there is within the emerging movement. (Most of my exposure had been through reading some of Brian McLaren's work.) I had just assumed that they all held to similar ideas and theology. I learned that I was wrong. There's a wide spectrum of beliefs around things like sin, scripture, church leadership, teaching and the work and person of Christ.

John's writing style is clear and straight forward. He's documented everything in excellent footnotes and the book's format is very logical. Although this work is scholarly, he's written it in such a way that it's accessible--anyone can read it and easily keep up.

I highly recommend this book!

John Bohannon has done a fine job of describing the emerging church movement, a movement which has confused many evangelical Christians, including myself. He centers his timely discussion on the beliefs and practices of four principal figures in this movement - Mark Driscoll, Dan Kimball, Brian McLaren, and Doug Pagitt. Although I certainly do not agree with many of the tenets of the emerging church movement, this book was very useful in helping me to understand the main features of a significant segment of Protestantism in this post-modern era.
