Includes¬∑Samples and photos of emerging church worship gatherings ¬∑Recommended resources for the emerging churchThe seeker-sensitive movement revolutionized the way we did church and introduced countless baby boomers to Jesus. Yet trends show that today's post-Christian generations are not responding like the generations before them. As we enter a new cultural era, what do worship services look like that are connecting with the hearts of emerging generations? How do preaching, leadership, evangelism, spiritual formation, and, most of all, how we even think of "church" need to change?The Emerging Church goes beyond just theory and gets into very practical ways of assisting you in your local church circumstances. There is no one right way, no model for us all to emulate. But there is something better.

Kimball is not a "far-out-there" type like some associated with the emerging church. He is very theologically conservative, but progressive in method.

This book offers great insight into how churches can reach the emerging generation. This is a must read for any would be pastor to the younger crowd.

Just ignore all the commentary that is given throughout the book. ( )

Not thorough, but helpful in its explorations of some elements in the emerging church. ( )

I really don't like this book. I'm sympathetic to the emerging church, but Kimball displays an attitude like "everyone's got it wrong, we got it right". Plus, he contradicts himself too often. ( )
