Does the phrase “emergent church” mean anything to you? It should. Do names like Brian McLaren, Dan Kimball, Mike Yaconelli, N. T. Wright or Dallas Willard ring a bell? They should. Have you read anything by D.A. Carson? You should. And so, when D.A. Carson, a scholar I’ve greatly enjoyed reading through the years due to his fearlessness and thoroughness of thought and research, writes an entire book engaging the whole emergent church movement, Brian McLaren, etc., well, it’s clear that somewhere down the line soon this is surely going to cost me something on the order of $15.
