Emerging Churches

Emerging Churches: Creating Christian Community in Postmodern Cultures is a new, and some say, definitive book on the Emergent Church movement.  I’ve only read the introduction, but this book stands out from other books about postmodern ministry and the emerging church that I’ve looked through in the bookstore in one important but simple way – it’s a normal looking book.  So many postmodern ministry books have odd margins, funky typesets, weird covers, distracting graphics, and other features that actually make the book difficult to read.  This book – based on interviews with 100 emergent church pastors – is presented in a simple, traditional, and easy-to-read format.

Thank you to the authors and editors for resisting the bizzare post-modern trend to make books inaccessible and cumbersome.
