The book was good, wish I would've read it a couple of years ago would've saved some time in trying to understand the whole post-evangelical/postmodern/emergent/emerging church thing, so the book was a quick read since I felt like I knew most of the material already.Basically the book was just another reminder that I don't fit into most of Christianity as usual and that unfortunately I probably won't find a church/community of faith in Spokane that I can fit into.
I've read two books by Brian McLaren and number of others by authors associated with the Emergent movement. For a time I was regularly reading a few Emergent blogs. I think it is particularly appealing to those of us who come from church backgrounds where everyone seemed to be fighting mad at all times.I felt I got a better look at the trajectory of the movement from "The Post-Evangelical", and I would have to say that this book sobered me up a bit. McLaren's books were at least as attractive as [...]
A few times in your life you read a book which you feel is life-changing and takes you in a new direction, not only of thinking, but also of living. As I read it I recognised thoughts that I had been having for years, unaware that someone else was going along the same route! Coming from an evangelical 'Brethren' background, Dave Tomlinson made a faith commitment as a young teenager, later receiving 'the baptism of the Holy Spirit'. This led him into the 'Charismatic Movement' with which he spent [...]
The first three quarters of this book didn't do it for me. They are written in "mentoring" style meant to encourage and guide the disaffected British evangelical. Now, being neither British nor evangelical I found it very difficult to relate. However, the last bit of the book just blew my mind! Tomilnson delves into many interesting theological issues from a postmodern perspective to understand the way culture and language impact the experience of faith, religion, and the perception of God. I am [...]
I found this very helpful in that it articulated many of my own thoughts about the narrow culture of the evangelical church. It lost me a bit towards the end and I think a lot has moved on since this was published so it would probably be worth reading a revised edition if there is one. Nevertheless there was a lot to appreciate here.
A good read and I especially like the sidebar notes from various Evangelical leaders. Although I did tire of Mark Galli's criticisms. Why contribute to someone's book if all you have to say is negative?The book definitely has given me something to think about with regard to my current view of faith and doctrinal issues.
An interesting read that gave me a lot to think about. Though the book is a few years old now, it can be seen as still a current issue. Also I see where the thinking in it has influenced me through others, so it is good to go back to the source.
Useful if you grew up in the 70s in the UK evangelical church. You'll probably identify with the descriptions and the questions if not all the answers and solutions. One of the first people to really challenge this 'wing' and allow others to do the same
Very interesting read. It highlighted some of the key concerns and issues of many people who have experienced evangelical churches. It offered understanding and some hope. I found it immensely uplifting and I could relate to much of it.
Partly a critique of the evangelical movement and partly a overview of how it is changing, this book touches on some interesting topics but doesn't go very in depth.
Puts into words my personal experienceThis book puts into words the disconnect I often find between my personal faith and my experiences with organized religion.
not the book on theology for which i was looking; but maybe reflects some home that some strains of evanglicalism is opening up.
When I read this quite some time ago I almost uncorked a bottle of fizz, because at last I knew I wasn't alone. Clear, personal, encouraging and rooted in reality.
