An Emergent Theology for Emerging Churches
By Ray S. Anderson
InterVarsity Press (2006), Paperback

Author: Anderson received his PhD at the University of Edinburgh. He is senior professor of theology and ministry at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Organization: The book divides into ten distinct chapters. Each chapter discusses a contrasted pair:
  • Theology not geography
  • Christ not just Christology
  • Spirit not just spirituality
  • Right gospel not just right polity
  • Kingdom living not kingdom building
  • Work of God not just word of God
  • Law of love not letter of Law
  • Community of the Spirit not just gifts of the Spirit
  • Mission not just ministry
  • Church ahead of us not just church behind us

Intention: To offer an emergent narrative theology to the Bible-teaching, Bible-reading community that is the emerging church, with the goal of helping to answer the question, what is the emerging church all about?
