We’re reading “The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why” and “Emergence Christianity,” two short books by Phyllis Tickle. I

In a sweeping overview of church history, Tickle shows that about every 500 years the Church feels compelled to hold a giant rummage sale of ideas once held inviolable. The birth of Christianity from Judaism and the 16th-century Reformation are just two examples. But what emerges from these upheavals, although alarming then, has been a new, vital and more widespread form of Christianity, this book argues. We're at such a point now, Tickle writes, then goes on to discuss the multiple social and cultural changes that have led us to this point. What might the new emergent Church look like, and where might it be headed?
