Justin Taylor on the Emerging Church Movement

Justin Taylor is posting a series of blogs on "What is the Emerging Church Movement?" There were seven posts today, with more to come. I've been sort of following the "emergent conversation" from a far and have read a number of books now, including D. A. Carson's, one by Brian McLaren, Rob Bell's new book, and the "five views" book edited by Leonard Sweet. But Taylor has done more research than I have and seems to be genuinely trying to understand the movement before offering critique. I'm interested in what he has to say, and if you have emergent leanings (or even if you aren't familiar with the language of "emerging" and "emergent" but have been intriqued by reading or hearing Rob Bell or Brian McLaren or Donald Miller) then this would be worth your reading.
