Can you Define the the Emerging Church?

It feels a bit like old news to me, but that was the question from a dear partner in service to the Lord in my in-box this morning.

This is surely not the answer to end all answers, but I’ll have a go anyway.

Snarly answer:

The Emerging Church movement is a house of cards without foundation walls or ceiling, direction, blueprint or future; and most assuredly without a Bible they trust or a God they can identify.

Real answer:

The Emerging church is a bit like post-modernism – hard to define but easy to spot. In fact the Emerging church has emerged out of post-modern philosophy which can be summarized in phrases like, “There is no such thing as absolute truth” which is itself an absolute statement.
