Though the emergent church was once viewed as a fringe movement with little to offer established congregations, it is now seen as one of the central driving forces shaping the future of postmodern Christianity in North America.

All of the essays were very good. The only one I really did not like was "Satanism in the Suburbs" by Christopher Rodkey.

Seemed to be an inconsistent expression of "emergence" ...didn't mean the same to each author. However I'm not sure that voices of the "emergent church" are seeking consistency! First chapters were easy to read. Eventually found myself struggling to finish the book and actually skimmed through one or two chapters near the end.
