Abstract

A many-sided debate about the relations of Christianity and the emerging postmodern culture is going on in our time. On one side of the debate are those who believe the emerging postmodern culture is a myth. On the other side are those who believe the postmodern culture is emerging at such a rapid pace that a radical response is required to save the church from virtual extinction. Between these two extremes exists a seemingly unlimited number of positions. Arguably the most vocal and influential voice in this debate is coming from a worldwide group of Christian leaders participating in the Emerging Church Movement (ECM).
