    1. in my opinion, this is the best book to read as an introduction to the idea of the emerging church. it lays out the ideas of the post-modern, post-christian culture that the church of the modern era is failing to reach and gives a lot of practical ideas of how to make the emerging church happen. a must-read for any christian who wants to see their faith remain viable for younger generations.

    2. THE EMERGING CHURCH: VINTAGE CHRISTIANITY FOR NEW GENERATIONS BY DAN KIMBALLThis book is written to those in seeker-sensitive churches who have found that the younger generation is not finding their services attractive. His case is built on personal experience of what the postmodern generation is looking for. Some of what he says he feels a little over-trendy (regardless of his protestations to the contrary). However, he does have put forward some very good insights in this book. The book is lim [...]

    3. Kimball's book was not only captivating in content but also in the layout of his material. This was in itself a postmodern approach to written text with multiple suggestions, comments, dialogue and monologue on each page. Divided into two parts Kimball explores deconstructing and reconstructing ministry. The story of his friend `Sky' and how he became a Christian set the pace for part one. Challenging the focus of worship and examining how we arrived here today by quoting the men of Issachar pro [...]

    4. The one thing Kimball does effectively is to blast the shaky foundations of the seeker-sensitive movement; however, the careful reader will note that he does not escape from this morass in practice, as witnessed by the many points at which he seems more concerned by what outsiders/non-Christians would think of the church than he seems concerned with their Christian counterparts. Take for example his reference in Chapter 16 to his "haircut homiletics" sessions with his unsaved hairdresser, during [...]

    5. This is quite a challenging book for any traditional pastor. In fact, I think the material presented within would be quite challenging even for pastors of more modern churches. But challenging in a good way. I would encourage every pastor to read this and work through the material within, but maybe read a book like Stott's Cross of Christ or Noel Due's Created for Worship first to get your priorities straight.The need for having a firm Biblical foundation before reading this book is great becaus [...]

    6. This is a mildly dated and basic but helpful book to introduce the emerging church to those who are otherwise unfamiliar with it. The writing style is definitely modern, with organized chapters, charts, and an "us-them" tone, which makes sense, as Kimball is trying to reach those who are not yet aware of the philosophical changes in the (mostly) younger generations who are not coming to their churches. I have read a fair amount about the emerging church, and so far, the content here is consisten [...]

    7. Kimball tries really hard with this book. From the "post modern" layout to the writing style, this book is supposedly a definitive apologetic for the "Emergent" movement. The harder the author tries to explain and explore the concept, the more traditional religious boxes he puts things into, until those readers (like myself) who are involved in what has been labeled the emergent movement do not recognize it, nor want to be associated with what is doomed to be another church program.Kimball antic [...]

    8. Again: don't judge a book by its cover. This book is less about "the emerging church" as a movement and more about re-approaching church in terms of new/old methodology. Yes, Kimball does try to reshape what you think about "church" and "evangelism," but this isn't a primer on the Christian movement everyone is talking about. It's a simple and fast read: didn't tell me a lot that I didn't already know, however, but I do think it'd be a good book for an old-timer trying to understand these younge [...]

    9. Divided into two sections, the first section does well at setting the scene for the emerging church and explaining the difference in philosophy and culture between the modern and post-modern generations. The second section talks about the practicalities of doing church in a post-modern world and this is where time has taken its toll. I can see how this would have been radical stuff eight years ago but nowadays most of his suggestions are common place. Perhaps the church has truly emerged after a [...]

    10. I don't see this working in all contexts. He asserts that many post moderns are interested in religions but are put off by Christians. That maybe true for some. But for those who are agressively postmodern I don't see how they are going to believe in the abosulute truths of Christianity when they believe that there is no meaning and contrdiction is normal. And experience comes before belief. However, the first part does give Without heart change, these people will probably fall away too. Therefo [...]

    11. Wonderful introduction to help Christians understand those who are interested in spiritual things but not how many Christians practice it. He balances critiquing and praising the past well. He stays in the personal realm - shying away from theorizing what people "might" want. Be warned, though, you may see yourself in his descriptions and want more change than others are interested in.

    12. Terrific book! "Emerging church 101" for those who don't know what it is or why it's important. Kimball is the best and making the complex topic of postmodern ministry clear and simple. It's full of quotes and comments in the margins by other voices in the e-church movement.

    13. While I didn't always come to the same conclusions as Kimball, I LOVED his approach to uncovering the ancient and holy ways to approach God in our hi-tech, low-relationship world today. Check it out and wrestle with his views it's good for you.

    14. Attempts to describe post-modernism. Explains how we can embrace people in their culture rather than conforming people to our own culture, without compromising the message of the gospel.

    15. A very lucid, well-written argument for why and how American Christian churches need to rethink evangelism.

    16. Good book, but as with any book dealing with church practice and/or doctrine, be sure to read it with your open Bible in your other hand.

    17. Good handbook for those who need to understand the postmodern Christian and what he or she is searching for.

    18. I love it when a book gets me thinking about applications for my ministry. This book does that. I have recommended it for congregational leaders.

    19. Another good read to challenge your thinking on what worship is. Does it have to be on Sunday morning at 10:45 or can friends gather on Thursday after work?

    20. This was the book to read when being "emerging" or "emergent" was cool. Dan is cool and makes a lot of sense. I am afraid that others have come along and ruined what he and a few others started.

    21. This book was like a simple review of a class I took in college I enjoyed it but didn't always agree with the stereotyped it gave for the modern and post-modern generations.
