"Many would have us believe that life is hopelessly fragmented and truth an elusive dream. The authors of this book beg to differ and enthusiastically point us to the cohesive centrality and absolute supremacy of Jesus Christ. Having heard these messages live at the 2006 Desiring God National Conference, I'm thrilled to see them now in print. Highly recommended!"
—Sam Storms, lead pastor for preaching and vision, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
"Over the past decade evangelicals have been divided over how to respond to the challenges of postmodernism. The options—which have ranged from naïve denial to unquestioned embrace—tend to suffer from the same fatal flaw: putting the emphasis on culture rather than Christ. This collection corrects that error by providing a fresh perspective that is pastorally sensitive and biblically sound. A timely, well-reasoned book that should be enthusiastically welcomed by the evangelical community."
—Joe Carter, Editor, The Gospel Coalition; contributor, NIV Lifehacks Bible

The book is not overly complicated; everyone was able to engage with it in our group at church, so the readability was fine.
The chapters by Piper, Keller and Wells were particularly stimulating as we are trying to reach our peers with the Gospel, so covering "culture", "joy and love" and "theologizing" was important to us.
We had the most discussion and criticism of Baucham Jr's treatment of postmoderns and Driscoll's contentions.
I would recommend this book to read with a group as it stimulates discussion quite well.
Definitely Baucham's essay was my favorite, but there were excellent viewpoints, from Piper's 10-step process of doctrinally based joy to former Emergent pastor Mark Driscoll's thought-provoking look at "Gospel Theologizing and Contextualizing." This book has a number of quality nuggets to make the reader think, and I think the journey necessitates my highest rating.
I expected a bit more direct assessment of emerging/emergent, but overall I appreciated the book's tone and presentation.
