I leave tomorrow for the 25th anniversary meetings of the Association of Christian Economists at Baylor University. A colleague, Kim Hawtrey, and I are presenting a paper entitled, "The Socio-economic Ideas of the Emergent Church: Some Reflections." We look at two representatives of the emerging church movement (Brian McLaren and Steve Chalke and the economic ideas they espouse. In many ways they are reminiscent of the social gospel of the liberal protestant church in the early 20th century. Anyone interested in the paper can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will return a copy of it via an e-mail attachment.
I may not have much opportunity to write new posts while at the meetings, which go through Saturday.
