I hope to read Emergence Christianity: What It Is, Where It Is Going, and Why It Matters by Phyllis Tickle (Publication Date: September 1, 2012)
Back in 2008/2009 I did a lot of research on Emergent/the emerging church. I even ended up writing about it in my culminating project for my Master's. Consequently, I find myself still intrigued in the ongoing writing of its key members.
"Welcome to the story that's still being written . . .
Whatever else one might say about Emergence Christianity, one must agree it is shifting and reconfiguring itself in such a prodigious way as to defy any final assessments or absolute pronouncements. Yet in Emergence Christianity, Phyllis Tickle gathers the tangled threads of history and weaves the story of this fascinating movement into a beautiful and understandable whole.
Through her careful study and culture-watching, Tickle invites you to join this investigation and conversation as an open-minded explorer. You will discover fascinating insights into the concerns, organizational patterns, theology, and most pressing questions facing the church today. And you'll get a tantalizing glimpse of the future."
