Yesterday I hosted the Jerry Johnson Live radio program in Dallas, Texas. My guest for the first half of the show was Dr. Scot McKnight, professor of religious studies at Northpark University in Chicago, Illinois. While Dr. McKnight did a great job, Iâ€™m afraid I may not have. Unfortunately, many of our listeners had trouble understanding what the emerging church is even after our discussion of it. I chalk this up to my less-than-perfect interviewing skills.
Thankfully, I can refer my readers and anyone who listened to yesterdayâ€™s show to Dr. McKnightâ€™s very clear essay, â€œThe Future or Fad? A Look at the Emerging Church Movement.â€ Also, Dr. McKnight writes regularly about all things emerging at his online blog, www.JesusCreed.org. If my interview didnâ€™t give a clear enough picture of where Dr. McKnight is coming from, those resources will.
Thanks to Dr. McKnight for his willingness to be a part of our show.
