    1. I just wasn't sure as I read this book. My experience with at least some Emerging Christians is that they are very Evangelical--just not as committed to calling people out for "improper" morals as their Evangelical peers. The authors also suggest that one of the main features of the ECM is individualization of the sort described by Bellah in "Habits of the Heart," years ago. Maybe so. But in this the ECM is extremely modernist, rather than deconstructionist. On one page it even mixes up individu [...]

    2. Marti and Ganiel have added a thoughtful and thick analysis to the literature on the emerging church. More rigorous and sociological than Gibbs and Bolger and more focused on religious themes than Packard's book, they put deconstruction at the centre of their examination of these congregations. Lots of rich ethnographic material as well as orienting references to theory. The best book on the emerging church, including the books written by emerging leaders on themselves (and there are many).

    3. An interesting, immersive look at "Christians" in US and UK who've walked away from much of modern Christianity. Lots to digest.
