Evangelicals Engaging Emergent: A Discussion of the Emergent Church Movement
Henway, William D.; Greenway, Adam
"The so-called 'emerging church' has now become a major focus of evangelical attention--and for good reason. This new movement presents a significant challenge to evangelical Christianity in this generation, and it deserves and demands a fair and thoughtful consideration. Bill Henard and Adam Greenway and their team of writers provide us all a much-needed evaluation of this movement. This book is timely and genuinely helpful."See All

"This collection of brilliant essays is a must read for contemporary church leaders and thoughtful Christians. The essays critique both the strengths of the 'doctrinally friendly' stream of the Emergent toward culture sensitivity and the weakness of the 'doctrinally way/averse' stream's penchant toward moral, biblical, and theological relativism. The essays are thought-provoking, thoughtful, well-researched, judicious, and readily accessible."See All

While plenty of books related to the conversations as well as controversies surrounding the emergent church have surfaced in recent years, no comprehensive evangelical assessment of the movement has been published until now. Evangelicals Engaging Emergent draws from a broad spectrum of conservative evangelicalism to serve as a clear, informative, fair, and respectful guide for those desiring to know what "emergent" means, why it originated, where the movement is going, what issues concern emergent believers, and where they sometimes go wrong theologically.
Among the dozen contributors are Norman Geisler ("A Postmodern View of Scripture"), Darrell Bock ("Emergent/Emerging Christologies"), Ed Stetzer ("The Emergent/Emerging Church: A Missiological Perspective"), and Daniel Akin ("The Emerging Church and Ethical Choices: The Corinthian Matrix").
