DeYoung and Kluck seek to provide corrective boundaries for the theological exaggerations and abuses that they perceive within the emergent movement. While seeing some perspectives and emphases to be admired, DeYoung and Kluck identify a number of themes within the emergent church that seem contrary to historical orthodoxy, whether explicitly or by omission. Why We’re Not Emergent is generally fair and accurate, if at times a bit uncharitable in its characterizations (Kluck’s chapters seems especially quick to mock rather than engage emergent leaders). The book asks, appropriately, where are the theological boundaries of the emergent church, a movement which often spurns theological definitions and creeds. B+
