The Emerging Church

There have been lots of critiques of the Emerging Church, especially from those on the far right, many of whom see it as heretical and as a threat to their brand of Christianity. Scot McKnight has a great article on the Christianity Today website on what he sees as five "streams" in the emerging church:
Prophetic (or at least provocative)
Praxis Oriented

I guess he spent a great deal of time in evangelical churches where alliteration of sermon points was important... still, he provides a good analysis of the movement from someone who considers himself part of the emerging church and comes to that position from a solidly evangelical background. Its worth a read.
