"An outstanding assessment of the theology of the emerging church movement, which both identifies some key weaknesses in its approach, while at the same time noting what evangelicals might learn from it - not least its 'mastery of the common touch'. Hannah Steele's book is an essential starting point for all reflecting on how to relate the Christian faith and the Christian church to the shifting complexities of postmodern British culture." -- Alister E. McGrath
