The other day I found a link to an article in Christianity Today that features a conversation between two contemporary authors. The article is providing a forum for each of these authors to address each other with observations and questions about each others camps so to speak. The authors are Collin Hansen who authored “Young, Restless, and Reformed: A Journalist’s Journey with the New Calvinists“, and Tony Jones who wrote “New Christians: Dispatches from the Emergent Frontier“. The conversation will continue over several days and makes for some interesting reading. The guys are very civil toward each other and bring up some questions that have interested me. Through the discussion I have learned a little more about the emergent church and the logic behind some of their theology or determined lack of it. It is interesting because they each mention the movements virtually being driven in part by discussions in the blogosphere. Imagine that? There are many blogs and bloggers mentioned that we all frequent. Go check it out and use the links provided to view each days discussion.
Two authors, two movements
