    I really enjoyed how the author brought several different areas of information into his book. There was a lot of poetry, discussions about art, science, etc. I also really enjoyed his discussion of change and his inclusion of waiting (or advent) as a precursor to change. However, I felt like his overall message was lost within those various discussions. I also would have liked him to elaborate more on his views of God, Christ, and scripture because I wasn't always sure where his view of church w [...]

    While I felt that Brewing presented some interesting ideas I found many of his statements about Churches with a highly structured governing body to be at best generalizations and at worst nasty stereotypes. I would have appreciated more specific accusations, as well as more specific statements about how the nature of the Emergent Church movement may eventually supersede these models. Overall I give this a major "eh".

    I'd never heard Brewin's idea about Judas before. Brewin presents that Judas, like most people of the time, hoped for Jesus to establish an earthly kingdom. By turning Jesus over to the Jewish leadership, Judas hoped to force Jesus' hand to respond violently and begin a revolution. Jesus instead chose to build his kingdom ground-up through evolution rather than a top-down revolution.

    This is a very thought-provoking book. Brewin is not using the term emergence in the same sense as has gotten overdone. He is taking a hard look at leadership in a new age and is proposing some pretty interesting ideas concerning the essence of God. Pretty raw.

    I liked this book. It is a compelling introduction to the emergent church. I will read and learn more. Loved his theory about Judas. So much in life frustrates our expectations. I know Brewin's Judas all too well!

    Good book but I felt like I had heard or read a lot of the stuff from somewhere else. I recommend this book to those needing an introduction to the idea of emergence and the Emerging Church, but if you already have a healthy understanding of such things don't hesitate to move on to deeper books.

    Really great book my wife came across last week. First three chapters are full of highlights now cause its just that good. Recommend to all church leaders/planters. Good food for thought.

    I read about 2/3 of the book and I just had to give up. I just couldn't finish it even though it was recommended as an amazing book.

    Such an amazing book! This is a must read. Don't judge the Emergent Church before you know what they even stand for. This isn't a knowledge that can be gained second hand. Just read the book.
