Sings of Emergence or Signs of Emergency?  Apr 1, 2009
This is a nice book if you want a first-hand account from the horse's mouth as to what the 'Emergent Mindset' really is.

Brewin is certainly serious about getting rid of authority structures in this radical re-visioning of the church. Unfortunately, it looks nothing like the church of the New Testament but more like a church made in Brewin's image, not Christ's.
 
Intelligent and provoking  Jan 10, 2009
Ik kreeg dit boek van this site aanbevolen bij de aanschaf van de boeken van Frank Viola over het herontdekken van gemeente zijn. Brewin's boek heeft een indrukwekkende ondertitel "A Vision for Church That Is Always Organic/Networked/Decentralized/Bottom-Up/Communal/Flexible/Always Evolving" en haalt al zijn hobbies en referenties uit de kast om de 200 pagina's vol te krijgen. Lessen uit de economie, politiek, kunsten, sociologie, psychologie, geschiedenis, interactie met publiek op het Greenbelt Festival tot verrassende lezingen van overbekende bijbelgedeelten. Zo neemt hij in het slothoofdstuk Judas Iskariot onder de loep, heeft hij een scherp oog voor de rol van vuil en reiniging en pleit hij voor een invloedrijke rol van kerken in steden en verstedelijkte gebieden. Wil je als gemeente doorgroeien, is het zaak stil te staan, God te zoeken en vooral geen concepten van buiten te kopiëren. Brewin werkt het concept van (offer)gaven, giften en aanbidding langs ongewone wegen uit, laat zien wat de rol van carnaval is en hoe goed het concept 'stad'. Als echte Brit schrijft hij ook merkbaar een ander Engels dat dat van een doorsnee Amerikaanse auteur. En dat merk je bij het lezen. Dat gaat in een fors lager tempo dan bij een Amerikaans boek. Kester Brewin heeft niet de wijsheid in pacht, brengt geen stappenplan, maar schetst de contouren van een organische, open, netwerkende, gedecentraliseerde, van onderaf gevoede, midden in de wereld opererende, zich verder ontwikkelende kerk. Een paradigma, dat verder ingevuld, uitgewerkt, geconcretiseerd mag worden, maar waarbij meer levenskracht zichtbaar wordt dan in menig kerk of kring om je heen.
 
excellent take on the form of emerging church  Nov 23, 2008
The chapter on what the emerging church looks like alone is worth buying this book. The rest helps flesh out the the character of emerging churches they're a bit more nebulous than chapter 4. Nevertheless there are some great things in this book worth discovering.
 
The idea of an 'emergent church' which may be better suited to meet the needs of worshippers.  Nov 5, 2007
SIGNS OF EMERGENCE is a pick for serious ministry and spirituality holdings, covering the basic of how to organize a church of believers and how to make it a decentralized body with more flexibility than the usual church structure. Chapters survey the idea of an 'emergent church' which may be better suited to meet the needs of worshippers. Chapters offer important guidelines and specifics on achieving such an institution.

Moves Beyond Religious Rhetoric into Reality  Aug 9, 2007
"Through Kester Brewin's eyes, pilgrims can see cities as the place where one's dreamy theologies and `psycho-spiritual bull' confronts the Concrete Christ. A highly recommended faith journey for those who dare to walk the walk and follow the trouble-making Jesus."
