Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tickle (The Great Emergence) has submitted yet another report on the condition of Christianity in America. The Emergent Church—a still-controversial and hard-to-define phenomenon—is, to Tickle and others, a crossdenominational, postpolitical vision of Christian fellowship and sincerity. All times are times of stress and change, and it is hard not to believe, for each of us, that we are in the midst of a revolution—Tickle certainly makes a convincing case for her conviction that this is a "great" moment in Christian history. VERDICT If you believe that Christianity is undergoing a great transformation, this is a crucial book; many Christians, liberal and conservative, should be intrigued.
