Kevin DeYoung's Book and Blog

Previously I have recommented the book, "Why We're Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be)" -- the authors are Kevin DeYoung (a friend of mine who is pastor of University Reformed Church in East Lansing) and Ted Kluck (a member at URC and an author of three previous books, also writing for ESPN the Magazine, etc.).

This is a very good book for understanding the serious concerns related to the emergent/ing church/movement. The authors focus on the weaknesses of the movement (although noting some strengths too), and they do so in a fair (and often funny) way that is easy to understand.So if you've been wondering what the Emergent Church is all about, and why some (like me) are so concerned about its serious flaws, this is a great book to read.

Kevin is a good friend, so I was happy to see that his book was selected for "Christianity Today" magazine's best book award in the category of The Church/Pastoral Leadership.

Kevin has also started a blog of his own with the clever (OK, that might be debatable) name, "DeYoung, Restless and Reformed."
