The Emergent Church – 1980


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.

HT: Dan Kimball who seems to dig up these books out of nowhere.
