Jonny, I really have to agree with you. I am about halfway through the book and i am so excited. This is what i am giving out for Christmas presents this year! Great work on your contributions! Adele


I'm REALLY looking forward to grab a copy when it comes to Malaysia (hopefully soon) .. the shipment through Amazon is just too expensive for our standards.

BTW, I was REALLY blessed by what you and Karen did at Princeton for the alternative worship session :-)

Fernando Gros

This is on my "to buy" list. Look forward to reading it.

Sue Wallace

Glad to hear its coming out in the UK with SPCK as well.
I was pretty impressed with it too!

hi jonny

i think brits will be happy to see a lot of unpublished material about the early days of NOS and to hear from alt. worship leaders like Andy Thornton who have managed to avoid getting into previous books.

ohhh . . btw - i will be in london for one day on dec 7 and will be at global zoo. see u there


Although Eddie does not include research in the book from an Aussie context, when he was here this year he was very excited about what was going on. He did some teaching for ACOM (www.acom.edu.au) and some other sessions around the east coast, one of which I attended. At that lunch in Melbourne, he spoke with much enthusiasm (and some concern) for the emerging climate in our great land! He has some great things to say along the lines of theological education and is very impressed with the direction ACOM is taking education in the nation. (gotta say that...I work for them!!)
I gotta get this book!!

Way to tease us Jonnny,,,,that said it does mean we have time to save our pennies and be able to afford the thing!

Warm Regards
John :)


Any idea if it will be published in Australia?


I have been a reader of this blog for some time, but not a regular contributor. I love Jonny and have done since we first met in a YFC context many years ago. Having gotten the slush out of the way, I have to say that from a distance the discussion of 'emerging church' is seen as navel gazing for a new generation in societies where the church is strong. Where I live the church is unseen ( just as well as it is quite ugly). The two most successful intiatives over the last 400 years has been the Jesuit led initiative in the 1500s and more recently the influence of the non-church movement: a christian movement but one that rejected the west's emphasis on local churches.
I am stimulated by what I read so keep it up but I have to make sense of the gospel in an entirely different universe.
