The Emerging Church: Some Critical Issues

John Morehead writes:


My friends and colleagues, Simeon Payne and Philip Johnson in Australia, recently wrote an article for Mosaic Vol. 8, No. 2 (Winter 2006), a publication for Baptist churches in that country. The article is titled "Baptists and the Emerging Church: some critical issues." I am reproducing this article in installments in order to share their thinking in the hopes of facilitating dialogue between leaders in the emerging church and other forms of church in the West. The article is copyrighted by Payne, Johnson and Mosaic. A copy of this article is available in PDF file by request.

If you'd like to read more see: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV

As it may or may not be obvious, I'll out myself as one of the (former) alterative spirituality seekers alluded to at the end of part III. Though I differ with the authors on a few minor issues (which I discussed with them during the final edit) I agree with the overall thesis and encourage others to engage with the discussion points they're bringing up.
