The Emergent Church, Socio-Economics and Christian Mission

Kim Hawtrey, John Lunn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The social thought and outreach philosophy of the Emergent Church offers a revolutionary take on global Christian mission. In particular, according to this new paradigm, the mission of the church requires nothing short of a radical revision of today's economic system. A review of writings by leading emergent thinkers such as McLaren and Chalke, however, raises questions about the extreme economics being proposed. There are also deep concerns from an evangelical theological perspective.
