The emergent church movement has been very influential. Certainly, some of the things they are saying ought to be said. Some of their critiques of the church in America today are spot on. But there are significant problems within the emergent church movement. Keven Deyoung and Ted Kluck are two men who fit the demographic of emergent. Why is it then that they are not emergent? In their book Deyoung and Kluck carefully explain why they are not emergent. They write with doctrinal precision, gracious hearts, and good cheer. This is an important book. If you want to know more about the emergent church, particularly why it is a problematic movement then this book will serve you well.
