Tony Jones
I don't know how else to write this post on Tony Jones--Deny Burk says it all in "Tony Jones: A Gobbledygook 'Orthodoxy'." He concludes:

No doubt Tony Jones and the Emergent Village belong to what has been called the “revisionist” wing of the emerging church. They are among those who are radically redefining what it means to be Christian, which for some is another way of saying that they are not Christian. When a movement or “Christian” community treats the seven ecumenical councils as if they were up for grabs (or otherwise as a plaything to be deconstructed), then that movement or community has crossed over from the ranks of the orthodox to join the JW’s, the Mormons and all the others who do not stand in the life-giving stream.

The danger of Emergent deconstruction is that in many cases its heterodoxy wears an evangelical garb. But this should not be surprising. We received fair warning that this is precisely how the wolves always work (Matthew 7:15; Acts 20:29-30).

Jones' latest venture into heresy is also linked in Burk's post (in PDF format). If you have a strong enough stomach, read Jones' entire presentation.
