If you want to understand the Emergent Church, this is a good book to start with, because Paigett focuses on how he does Church, which is at the heart fo the movement. Half the time I read it, I said to myself, "Well, of course!" and half the time I said, "huh?"

All in all he paints, a glowing picture of alternative way of doing church. The best part is that he includes sections from his parishioners, kind of a practice what I preach sort of move, and it works really well in this book.

If you think Church can be done better, you might want to start with this book. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310256879, Paperback)

Reimagining Spiritual Formation isn’t about quick-fix methods or bulleted, how-to lists. And it’s certainly not a dry lecture about a heady theological topic.

Instead this book is about striving, about trying, about experimenting with the idea that the old ways of approaching spiritual formation may not be the only avenues toward living lives in harmony with God in our day.

Inside these pages you’ll spend a full week with Solomon’s Porch—a holistic, missional, Christian community in Minneapolis, Minnesota—and get a front row seat at the gatherings, meetings, and meals. Along the way, you’ll also discover what spiritual formation looks like in a church community that’s moves beyond education-based practices by including worship, physicality, dialogue, hospitality, belief, creativity, and service as means toward spiritual formation rather than mere appendices to it.

Specifically, you’ll glimpse into the lives of six people from Solomon’s Porch and track their growth through their journals as they wrestle with various approaches to spiritual development.

Reimagining Spiritual Formation is ideal for thinkers, pastors, church leaders, and anyone else seeking fresh ways of experiencing life with God.
