Flipping through a catalog from Baker Books I came across a book by Eddie Gibbs and Ryan Bolger entitled Emerging Churches. From the write up it appears to be a sympathetic look at the movement (errr… conversation). The thing I found kind of interesting was the endorsement from Brian McLaren, in which he takes a not so subtle swipe at DA Carson: “If you want to be truly conversant with emerging churches, this is the book to read.” (Carson wrote a book on the Emerging Church entitled Becoming Conversant with Emergent that was rather critical and, hence, not well received by those inside the, ummmm, loosely affiliated network(?).) Not a big deal, just something I found interesting.
