Scot McKnight Takes on Emergent Criticism

I've blogged about this back on the 19th. I said that I was frustrated by James MacDonald and his wafer-thin caricature of the Emerging Church on the Leadership Journal blog, "Out of Ur".

Well, Scot McKnight is frustrated too.
Read his penetrating analysis of MacDonald's points at Jesus Creed.

And note that the 27th response to McKnight's post is from MacDonald himself. McKnight's analysis is good. I have both concerns with and appreciation for the emerging church. At the risk of being shot at, I found myself agreeing with much of Don Carson's analysis, frankly. I have deep concerns with McLaren, more so than with most of the others I've read, and I had those concerns (but they were amplified) prior to reading Carson.

Bottom line, though: I think that a lunch date with McKnight and MacDonald is exactly what we could use a lot more of. Speaking with each other rather than at each other is a good thing.
