Emergence ChristianityMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
I love it when a book actually lives up to its title, or in this case its subtitle. This book really does explain what emergence Christianity is and where it came from, where it's likely going and why it matters and it does it clearly, concisely and in lovely bite sized chapters that you can really think about before moving onto the next one. One of the other good things about this book is that the footnotes at the end of each chapter are comprehensive and yet written in an engaging style, so much so that they almost seem like an interesting and often amusing extra insight into the chapter and act as a summary overview. The author points out in the preface that this book should be considered a report, an interim report as it were, to a changing phenomena, and as with any good report therefore we get an overview of what went before, of how things have changed and of where things are going. It's a good clear series of articles, well worth the reading for anyone with even a passing interest in Fresh Expressions, the new monastic movement, or as termed here emergence Christianity. Admittedly the book is unashamedly based on US history, but given much of the foundation and development of these ideas is US based, this is no bad thing and many will fully recognise our own UK movements and experiences here also. A good read for those without firsthand knowledge of emergence Christianity who'd like to understand it a little more.
