Thanks to my friends at Zondervan, I was able to read Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches and will be reflecting on it throughout the rest of this week. Tallskinnykiwi has a great review of it here, in case you’re interested.
Overall, I thought the book was okay. To be honest, I feel like I’ve read so many Emergent-ish books that sometimes I feel like I’m not really reading anything much that’s new. But I do enjoy the kind of conversation-oriented books that Emergent supports, and this one is a good example of the way in which there can be dialogue within a book, between the authors. I will focus on one chapter each day this week – some thoughts, a few quotes. I’m going to be traveling and my computer is being sent to Apple for some tender-loving-care this week, so I probably won’t be around to follow the conversations. But I hope you enjoy some thoughts on Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches.
