Following the intruiging ideas raised in Brian McLaren's bestselling A New Kind of Christian, Tony Jones has written an engaging exploration of what this new kind of Christianity looks like. Writing "dispatches" on the thought and practice of those within the Emerging Church, he offers an in-depth look at this new "third way" of faith - its origins, theology, and its views on truth, Scripture and interpretation, along with the movement's hopeful and life-giving sense of community. With the depth of theological expertise and broad perspective he has gained as a pastor, writer, and as a leader of this movement, Jones invites readers into the Emergent conversation and offers a new way forward for Christians in a postmodern world. With journalistic narrative as well as authoritative reflection, he provides fascinating examples and first hand stories that mark this new and revitalized incarnation of Christianity.

Review 1 for The New Christians: Dispatches from the Emergent Frontier
Date:March 14, 2010
If this is what the emerging church really is then we should all be scared of things to come. The end times are getting closer and closer. I am very afraid for the coming generation with teaching out there like this. Watering down of the truth and and treating Gods word as a story book that has some truth and some fiction. Every christian should read this book for a picture of what is coming and the false teaching coming from the emergent movement.
