Emerging in Chicago

posted by xscot mcknight

I will be participating in a panel discussion called “Questioning the Answers: the emerging church critique of evangelicalism” on Thursday, Sept. 20th at 7pm in the northwest suburbs. It’s hosted by up/rooted, the Chicago area emerging cohort.
Here is the announcement sent out by Jon Bernbaum at up/rooted north.
The panel discussion will be on the emerging church’s critiques of evangelicalism, and consideration of the way forward. The panelists are Scot McKnight, professor at North Park University and prodigious blogger and author; Wayne Johnson, professor and director of the MDiv program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and former dean of students; and Dave Fitch, professor at Northern Baptist Seminary, pastor at Life on the Vine, and slightly less prodigious blogger and author.
Each of us will critique a particular response of the emerging church to evangelicalism (think issues of authority, church structure, worship, preaching, role of Scripture, etc.) and we’ll get a chance to engage in open discussion with everyone on these crucial issues.
Come out and join us as we gather together around the emerging conversation on Thursday evening, September 20th at 7pm at Life on the Vine in Long Grove, IL.

Scot,
The last three links in the post need to be corrected. They concatenate the intended URLs with the blog URL.

just heard your talk “the whole gospel” on the emergent podcast. i can’t wait to hear you in person at this event. i have been slowly, skeptically circling this whole “emerging” phenomena and your comments about not reducing the gospel to sin vs. the cross has helped me see that there may be something worth getting more involved in. thank you.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
