Roger Overton over at the A-Team Blog
has an informative review of the latest salvo from emergent leaders
in his post: "Book Review: An Emergent Manifesto of Hope
." Rating this book 6 out of ten, he concludes with the following:
One thing that should become clear to readers of this book is that the Emergent Church is not, nor is it seeking to be, a monolithic movement. Voices in this book range in their views of theology and the role of the Bible in their ministries- some calling the church to fulfill its biblical mandates and some others straying from biblical teaching.
An Emergent Manifesto of Hope is valuable in that it presents a variety of Emergent practices and theologies in the words of its promoters. Those who are looking to participate or to better understand the movement will benefit from reading the volume.
