The emerging church movement has quickly become one of the fastest growing ecclesiological phenomena in the west today. But there is still a debate to be had about whether accessibility should trump Christian orthodoxy.

Offering an assessment of the impact of the emerging church upon the church in the West, and examining the thinking of the movement's leading proponents including Brian McLaren and Rob Bell, New World, New Church? affirms what is good and insightful in the emerging church and offers a robust critical evaluation of its theological revisions.

Bibliography 

Hannah Steele

Hannah Steele is Tutor in Theology at St Mellitus College. Hannah studied a BA in Theology and Philosophy at Oxford University and gained an MA in Theological Education at Kings College London. Her PhD research at Kings was supervised by Alister McGrath who provides a foreword for this book. Alongside her academic work, Hannah has spent time engaged in mission and evangelism amongst students in central London as a staff worker with the University and Colleges Christian Fellowship. She is frequently invited to speak and teach on the subject of this book at conferences and in ministerial training institutions.

"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
