Aletheia’s Review:

This is a 2008 book on the emergent church by DeYoung and Ted Kluck.  DeYoung is the primary writer and Kluck adds chapters from his personal experience.  Even if you just read DeYoung’s chapters this is a book worth having.  Among explaining various faults with the emerging church (anti-foundationalism, anti-modernism, anti-traditionalism) he says, “The biggest irony about the emergent church may be just this:  For all their chastisement of all things modern, they are in most ways thoroughly modern.  Many of the leading books display a familiar combination of social gospel liberalism, a neo-orthodox view of Scripture, and a post-enlightenment disdain for hell, the wrath of God, propositional revelation, propitiation, and anything more than a vague moralistic, warmhearted, adoctrinal Christianity.”  p. 160
