myth: The emergent church began one day when Jerry Falwell had a splitting headache. He called Jim Dobson, who promptly fetched a battle-ax and smote Falwell in the head. When his skull split, Brian McLaren, Spencer Burke, and Tony Jones emerged, fully grown, clothed in flannel shirts, and drinking Starbucks. They called themselves “emergent” and joined the pantheon of American religious celebrities.
