Scot McKnight on the Emerging Church at Westminster

Scot McKnight delivered his paper at Westminster Theological Seminary on”What is the Emerging Church.”

To define a movement, we must let the movement have the first word. We might, in the end, reconceptualize it – which postmodernists say is inevitable – but we will should at least have the courtesy to let a movement say what it is. How many of you would tolerate an Arminian defining Calvinism by reducing it to “irresistible grace” or even TULIP? or of calling all of Calvinsim “hyper-Calvinism”? I think folks like you should get to define what you think, and I think the emerging folks should be given the same privilege.
