Mark DeVine on Emerging Church and Southern Baptist

Dr Mark DeVine has released a paper called “Fast Friends or Future Foes: The Emerging Church and Southern Baptists”. Good thoughts and well written. Not too many examples of emerging church movements within the Southern Baptist Church but maybe Mark will write more on that another time.

Speaking of Southern Baptists, I am speaking three times at the Easter Camp for IMB missionaries (SBC) here in the UK. We will explore an incarnational missiology and will draw from about a dozen Baptist missiologists and theologians. Plenty of material there inside the SBC world and plenty of examples and stories from within the camp.

My paper on the emerging church movement in the Southern Baptist world (1994 to present) will be coming soon.

Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
