A thoughtful review is sometimes hard to find. Just found this article on the emerging church and it seems to highlight some of the important issues raised by the emerging church. It highlights some of the positives as well as the negatives. Here’s part of the conclusion:
Soft postmodernism…presents the church with many lost virtues of grace and irenics (theology done peaceably). For this we can be thankful. But we must guard the truths of Scripture with the conviction that the evidence has presented. Our traditions may or may not be wrong, but that is for the evidence to decide. There also are non-essentials that need to be spoken about with conviction, even if we might be wrong in the end. In short, let us be balanced in our understanding of the issues on the table and let us not lose the conviction that the truths of Scripture produce.
Seems to be a more helpful review than some that are out there.
