In fact, it is much broader and is influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful yet highly deceptive, and it draws its energy from practices and experiences that are foreign to biblical Christianity. The path the emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of an interfaith perspective that has prophetically profound ramifications. It is indeed a new way of being Christians, and in every conceivable manner, it is striving to bring about a new reformation. Without a doubt, it will have an impact on all churches in the Western world and far beyond. For behind this new kind of church is a well-designed strategy and maneuver by the prince of this world, the enemy of our souls, to literally take apart the faith of millions-it will be nothing less than faith undone.

    This is a really important book to read. It has made me realize that I cannot just accept other Christians' view of what is true, I must take my knowledge directly from the source-the Bible. Christianity is not about just about great feelings and love, it is about staying fluent and immersed in the scriptures so that you can intelligently and faithfully discern what is true. But don't take my word for it. This is a really important book to read.

    Upon completing this book (with a great title), it was apparent to me that Faith Undone was not really about the emerging church, although Roger Oakland touched on the subject (mostly at the beginning). The book is simply a second edition of A Time of Departing (by the same publisher), with the emerging church subject as a springboard.

The book is simply a second edition of A Time of Departing (by the same publisher), with the emerging church subject as a springboard. Author Oakland constantly made points about mystic practices and then had to try to apply them to the emerging movement without actually addressing the emergents specifically. It just didn't make sense unless he was trying to build a case against mystical spirituality (and not so much the emerging church movement). That's how it appeared to me and I tried to read the book objectively. I was able to do so for the first few chapters until it seemed an agenda was the driving force of the book. And then I thought the book lost some steam (in convincing argument). I do not recommend spending your time reading this book.

    Another way of doing church has surfaced and spread throughout some of Christianity. Oakland traces the beginnings and growth of "the emerging church" movement. Based on mysticism, it stresses experience rather than faith in God with the attending doctrines. "Christ-followers" may keep their own faith, be it a Christian denomination, Hindu, Buddhist, or other. The stage for the "emerging church" of the 21st century was primed during the process of ecumenism during the past several decades. Love Another way of doing church has surfaced and spread throughout some of Christianity. Oakland traces the beginnings and growth of "the emerging church" movement. Based on mysticism, it stresses experience rather than faith in God with the attending doctrines. "Christ-followers" may keep their own faith, be it a Christian denomination, Hindu, Buddhist, or other. The stage for the "emerging church" of the 21st century was primed during the process of ecumenism during the past several decades. Love of people matters, doctrine doesn't. The Bible is deemphasized, along with the Gospel and Christ's saving sacrifice on the Cross. This movement relies on contemplative spirituality, using prayer that goes within to a place of quiet and emptiness with the aim of hearing God's voice and feeling oneness with everything. Oakland points out when we totally empty our minds, the voice we hear is not God's, but a demon's. The "emerging church" movement is very critical of Christians who stress preparing for and surviving the Last Days with the hope of seeing Jesus Christ. Some emergent leaders stress only building God's Kingdom on earth, usurping Christ. The book is well written, researched, and reads smoothly. Review written by Betsy Borchardt

    This was a wonderful book about the emerging church movement. It is a great summary of all the books I have read so far. It took a bit longer to read than I thought and thus gives me the impression that it goes on a bit but it was very informative although the author does tend to speculate quite a bit. This book does go so far as to instill a certain amount of wariness towards this new movement. It might be wise to at least keep one's ears open.

    This is a very important book to help understand what is going on within the Emerging/Emergent Church movement. It contains extensive original quotes from original sources. I would highly recommend this book.

    A hack-job. I do not agree with many beliefs of many of the people who are attacked in this book, but I have read them and they are represented unfairly to support a kind of end-times conspiracy theory. There are some legitimate concerns raised, but it's hard to trust a book that has either 1) Not done its research or 2) is intentionally misrepresenting others' beliefs. I believe the former is correct, but I would not recommend this book. A hack-job.

    Wow, an eye-opener on the origins of some of the beliefs held by people influencing the direction of Christianity! Some things come into the church that just seem trendy, or "touchy-feely", most might seem easily dismissed, but to see whats behind some of these things causes concern.

    Un libro muy interesante donde podemos ver el error de la iglesia emergente y sus conexiones con la nueva era y las filosofías orientales, religiónes panteístas, etc. Recominedo su lectura a quien quiera hacer un estudio serio sobre la iglesia emergente.

    Very anti-Catholic in several chapters. Though his emphasis was making sure that we are following the word of God and not man.
