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.
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!
