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.

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
