Book Recommendation: Emerging Churches: Creating Christian Community in Postmodern Cultures

I just finished Gibb's and Bolger's comprehensive work on the emerging church. I believe it captures the heart of many people in the emerging church conversation. Especially those of us that are seeking to participate in the missio Dei where we live. Great read.

I'm reading it now. As a Canadian, there is some obvious differences. While I would love for a similar study to be done in Canada, but alas, these kinds of books are market driven, so I doubt it would fly.

A good book if you are looking for a comprehensive overview of EC but I am left unconvinced by its analysis- at the end of the day Gibbs and Bolger's nine practices are so broad they may include contradictory positions such as intentional residential communities and liquid church (a anathema to Christian discipleship in my humble opinion). It remains however and essential read for anyone considering the emerging church conversation- I am nervous of the rhetoric in some sections of the Emerging Church which now drive towards talking about EC as a movement. A final word- emerging churches (plural) is a fantastic title to the book and the research is very important.
