Emergent Critique and Defense

For those who are interested, today I read a couple of papers about the emergent church. Maybe you are familiar with this movement or conversation or whatever it is called. I would define it, but I don't know a good definition. D.A Carson has written a book about it. I haven't read it, but have read some responses and reviews. I read one today called The Emergent Church - Another Perspective by David Mills. It was a response to Carson. It was good. It seemed like Carson should have just stuck to NT exegesis, which by the way he is a master exegete.
I also read on called An Ecclesiological Assessment of the Emerging Church Movement by John Hammett who is a professor at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I recommend reading these if you are interested in what is going on with the emergent church. Both of them touch on the positives and negatives of the conversation/movement.
As I have read some of the guys in the conversation, I have been impressed with Mark Driscoll and Tim Keller. Speaking of Tim Keller's church, Mills quotes Carson saying it is an example of a church that "displays all the strengths of the emerging church movement while avoiding most of its weaknesses." I don't even thing these guys would associate themselves with the emergent church, but rather maybe emerging or missional. I like these guys. They both have a very high view of Scripture.
Purgatorio has posted some humorous pics that may be helpful in determining whether or not you are emergent.
