Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"A lot of us have been saying that a book like this one needed to be written. Snider and Bowen have given us just what we need -- and more, because the book not only says what needs to be said, but does so in a delightful, intelligent, and encouraging way. Enthusiastically recommended -- yes, for Mainliners, but also for Evangelicals and Roman Catholics who also need a shot of hope about the future."
-Brian D. McLaren, activist, author, and speaker

"Convergence between streams of emergent and progressive Christianity is a striking and hopeful happening. This exciting book is very much needed now."
-Marcus J. Borg, Canon Theologian at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Portland, Oregon, and best-selling author of The Heart of Christianity

"This painstakingly researched, beautifully crafted work not only places the reader's hand on the pulse of emerging theology but draws out how this contemporary movement relates to, and resonates with, the wider Christian heritage."
-Peter Rollins, founder of Ikon, and author of How (Not) to Speak of God and The Orthodox Heretic

I have not had the opportunity to read the book. I imagine it will be one that I enjoy and learn from as I am interested in the Emergent church.
