'Nelstrop and Percy have edited an excellent compilation of essays on the topic of what has come to be known as the "emergent" church. Having divided the book into four sections, the various essays offer both encouragement and criticism of movements in the UK that seek to establish themselves as either "fresh expressions" of church or part of the "emergent" church.' (Search, A Church of Ireland Journal)
'This book is not so much an exploration of emerging church as a discussion and evaluation of emergent church as defined by The fresh Expressions Initiative, whcih came out of the Mission Shaped Church report presented to General Synod in February 2004. It does, however, introduce the reader to all the ifs and buts associated with attempting to create and sustain new or different ways of being church in and for our changing culture. Bearing in mind that in a recent report over 66 per cent of adults are unreceptive to attending conventional church - it's a must read!' (Mission Catalyst)
