Don Carson has certainly kicked up a bit of dust lately with his book Becoming Conversant With the Emerging Church.
He is a significant biblical scholar and as such he adds weight to the number of people who critique the ’emerging church’ for its approach to mission and church.
But is he on the money?
When you write books like these you really want to make sure you have your facts straight.
As a Forge team here in Oz we have been discussing our own response to Carson. As a result Al Hirsch and Mike Frost have written a response on our behalf that details what we see happening.
It has helped us clarify our own understanding of what we are about and how we see Carson’s critique.
Update: I have deleted the paper. See the above postlast of the living divx online
