Readers of this blog are aware of the falling out between Pastor Mark Driscoll and the emerging church movement. Driscollâ€™s very public criticism of Brian McLarenâ€™s stance (or non-stance) on homosexuality and Driscollâ€™s subsequent apology make it very clear that the theological issues at stake in the emerging conversation cause no little dissension.
That is why the latest installment of the Criswell Theological Review does a great service to the evangelical communityâ€™s discussion of this important topic. The current issue features both Mark Driscoll and Brian McLaren. Driscoll contributes an article that gives â€œA Pastoral Perspective on the Emergent Church.â€ Brian McLaren participates in the conversation by doing an interview with the editor of the journal. In addition, this issue includes other articles both pro and con on the emerging movement.
