One of the things this chapter does well is identifying the concerns associated with the “emerging” church. So which (if any) of the protests are ones that you share as well?
Just so you don’t have to go back and look them up, here they are again…
1) Captivity to Enlightenment Rationalism
2) A narrow view of salvation
3) Belief before belonging
4) Uncontextualized worship
5) Ineffective preaching
6) Weak ecclessiology
Ok, even as I type, I am recognizing that some of this sounds fairly esoteric. Let’s try to flesh it out.
