You can be young, passionate about Jesus Christ, surrounded by diversity, engaged in a postmodern world, reared in evangelicalism, and not be an emergent Christian. In fact, I want to argue that it would be better if you weren't.

The Emergent Church is a strong voice in today's Christian community. And they're talking about good things, like caring for the poor, peace for all men, and loving Jesus. They're doing church a new way, not content to fit the mold. Again, all good. But there's more to the movement than that. Much more.

Kevin and Ted are two guys who, demographically, should be all over this movement. But they're not. And here's why--they do life founded upon orthodox beliefs about God, propositional truths about Jesus, and the authority of Scripture.

In Why We're Not Emergent, Kevin and Ted diagnose the emerging church from both a theological and an on-the-street perspective. They pull apart interviews, articles, books, and blogs, helping you see for yourself what it's all about.

Provocative yet playful, this book seeks to show you why being emergent isn't the only, or even the best, way to be passionate about Jesus Christ.

Such an honest, courageous look at the Emergent Church and why it is so destructive -- as always, Kevin DeYoung delivers a compelling read on the challenges the Church faces today with biblical precision.
