Resources on the Emergent Church

I've just been reading Sam Storms series reviewing (positively) Carson's recent book on the topic. Well worth dipping into, and here's the links:

D. A. Carson Critiques the Emerging Church by Sam Storms

There are a lot of resources out there, but some of the most useful are:

Albert Mohler - "A Generous Orthodoxy" - Is It Orthodox? A review of Brian McLaren's book.

R. Scott Smith - Ch. 3 Brian McLaren, Tony Jones, and The Emerging Church, Ch. 6 Critiquing McLaren & the Emerging Church. Two draft chapters from a forthcoming book

Tim Challies - Emergent Church Archive. A few blog posts by Tim Challies on the subject
