I was very pleased by this book. Though, as others have said, a very comprehensive read, it was well executed. I think that the contributors did a wonderful job not only sharing the features of the Emergent Church, but also of their personal faith stories. I was please, have recommended to others, and look forward to reading other resources by these aptly chosen contributors.

I'm sloughing my way through this "textbook" style of writing - only because I've heard of "the emergent church" in passing in my reading and because an "ex-pastor" is included and I wanted to see what he had to say about the subject. Not an easy read.
