Another book for my vintage emerging church book collection. “The Emergent Church:The Future of Christianity in a Postbourgeois World” ” by Johann Baptist Metz, 1980 (German), 1981 (English). Found it yesterday online and it arrived today. Thats fast.
The book has some good thoughts on “towards the second reformation”, and forming church with power from below (postbourgeois) .
The other books are The Emerging Church” by Larson and Osborne, 1970. John Carr’s book is more of a commentary on Ephesians.

Very cool. But just try to stick “Postbourgeois” into a title on a book proposal these days and see where it gets ya.
yes – the word worked in Germany backed then. I am sure a different word would be used today:
In USA, “post-suburban” or “post-whitecollar”
In UK, “post-middle-class”
Sorry to do this to you, TSK, but can you help Marko?
I read John Carr’s book 25 years ago. John came to speak at our church and I was so impressed with him – one of my first spiritual heroes – and his vision for church. It’s still on my bookshelf.
That’s funny, I just happend across Carr’s book in a used bookstore a few weeks ago.
