Editorial Reviews

Review

I m normally an upbeat person, but I get a little depressed when I see religious communities retrenching, reacting, defending, and engaging in more boundary-maintenance than bridge-building. That s why I find this volume so helpful and hopeful. It s about faith communities exploring, creating, admitting faults, and bridging divides on all sides. You ll meet Christian leaders who are obviously bright, passionately committed, and downright fascinating, people I m so glad to know as companions in this wild journey of emergence. --Brian D. McLaren, author/speaker/activist (brianmclaren.net)

Format: Paperback
It's no secret that Mainline Protestantism has experienced significant decline over the past fifty years. If you've been to a typical Mainline church you'll likely notice that those present are relatively order than the general population. Many pundits have put this branch of the Christian community on a death watch. Although the theology and social views (especially on issues such as homosexuality) of this brand of Christianity would seem to position it well to attract younger generations (GenX and Millennials), such has not been the case. Despite attempts to contemporize worship and become less traditional, these churches (my church) continue to struggle.

Phil Snider, a Disciples of Christ pastor, with Emergent inclinations has gathered together a set of essays written by other Emergent-inclined Mainliners. The Emergent Church movement had its birth among younger evangelicals who found the theological and social constraints of evangelicalism problematic. As they "moved left," they began to encounter younger Mainline Protestants who also were on a journey toward something new and engaging. They are not, Snider insists, "abandoning the traditions that have shaped them; rather they are attempting to faithfully appropriate their beloved traditions in new and innovative ways." They are, he suggests, seeking to retradition the church so that new life can emerge (p. xvi) As a result of these conversations a new breed of Mainliner developed - a hyphenated Emergent-Mainliner. Thus we have Presby-mergents, Luther-mergents, [D]mergents, Angli-mergents, and more.

The book, which carries a foreword by Phyllis Tickle and an afterword from Doug Pagitt, contains essays from thirteen Emergent Mainliners.

I've read many books on Emergent Christianity so much of it wasn't new. The author provides great documentation for further reading. We read it in preparation for a workshop with the author. I noticed that those who were new to the topic struggled with some of the chapters.
