Faith Undone: The Emerging Church...a New Reformation or an End-Time Deception

4.14  ·  Rating details ·  104 ratings  ·  19 reviews
Is the emerging church movement just another passing fad, a more contemporary approach to church, or the discontent grumblings of young people looking for answers? In fact, it is much broader and is influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful yet highly deceptive, and it draws its energy from pr ...more

Helpful resource for information about the dangers of the Emerging Church movement... Also try A Wonderful Deception.

This is a really important book to read. It has made me realize that I cannot just accept other Christians' view of what is true, I must take my knowledge directly from the source-the Bible. Christianity is not about just about great feelings and love, it is about staying fluent and immersed in the scriptures so that you can intelligently and faithfully discern what is true. But don't take my word for it. ...more

Upon completing this book (with a great title), it was apparent to me that Faith Undone was not really about the emerging church, although Roger Oakland touched on the subject (mostly at the beginning). The book is simply a second edition of A Time of Departing (by the same publisher), with the emerging church subject as a springboard. Author Oakland constantly made points about mystic practices and then had to try to apply them to the emerging movement without actually addressing the emergents ...more

Required reading to help believers avoid the pitfalls of the emerging new age beliefs permeating our churches.

Another way of doing church has surfaced and spread throughout some of Christianity. Oakland traces the beginnings and growth of "the emerging church" movement. Based on mysticism, it stresses experience rather than faith in God with the attending doctrines. "Christ-followers" may keep their own faith, be it a Christian denomination, Hindu, Buddhist, or other.

The stage for the "emerging church" of the 21st century was primed during the process of ecumenism during the past several decades. Love

This was a wonderful book about the emerging church movement. It is a great summary of all the books I have read so far. It took a bit longer to read than I thought and thus gives me the impression that it goes on a bit but it was very informative although the author does tend to speculate quite a bit. This book does go so far as to instill a certain amount of wariness towards this new movement. It might be wise to at least keep one's ears open. ...more

This is a very important book to help understand what is going on within the Emerging/Emergent Church movement. It contains extensive original quotes from original sources. I would highly recommend this book.

A hack-job. I do not agree with many beliefs of many of the people who are attacked in this book, but I have read them and they are represented unfairly to support a kind of end-times conspiracy theory. There are some legitimate concerns raised, but it's hard to trust a book that has either 1) Not done its research or 2) is intentionally misrepresenting others' beliefs. I believe the former is correct, but I would not recommend this book. ...more

Wow, an eye-opener on the origins of some of the beliefs held by people influencing the direction of Christianity! Some things come into the church that just seem trendy, or "touchy-feely", most might seem easily dismissed, but to see whats behind some of these things causes concern. ...more

Un libro muy interesante donde podemos ver el error de la iglesia emergente y sus conexiones con la nueva era y las filosofías orientales, religiónes panteístas, etc. Recominedo su lectura a quien quiera hacer un estudio serio sobre la iglesia emergente.

Very anti-Catholic in several chapters. Though his emphasis was making sure that we are following the word of God and not man.
