Emerging-phobic?
Seems to be some emerging church phobia around at the moment!
Evangelicals Now (again - see last post!) has an article on The Current Crisis in Evangelicalism.
Some of the points raised are valid - I have questions about Open Theism and the debate about Paul and Atonement is not suprising.
But here's the bit that I question:
"we are now seeing what is generally termed the ‘emerging church’. All too often, these latest manifestations of postmodern Christianity have no shape, no roots, no purpose — and no definable gospel."

Yet another suggestion that emerging church can be lumped together and that it has "no gospel".
Perhaps it is about defining gospel. Or perhaps its just more emerging phobia.
I'll leave it to those more articulate than me to answer!
