An important book that covers a lot of ground

on 4/22/2008

Roger Oakland does a good job of bringing together various aspects of the trend toward interspirituality. He describes the various trends in the world towards a eucharistic Jesus, worship of Catholicism's continually sacrificed "Jesus" present in the consecrated wafer and wine and adored in a case called a monstrance. This "Jesus" happily coexists in "mystery" with "truth" revealed through many other streams of knowing the god of this world. <p> Roger points out how several modern protestant leaders of the emerging church are embracing much of what was done away with after the protestant reformation, practices based on a theology opposed to the clear teachings of the Bible. He points out how these modern day false teachers embrace theological positions which come out of Catholicism and liberal protestantism. These leaders abandon the revealed truth of the Bible and turn it into mystery and mythology...embracing a "many paths" intersprituality. Most importantly, these new leaders embrace the concept of a worldly kingdom of God being established by human effort, not the one Jesus spoke of when He said His kingdom was NOT of this world. To accomodate this idea, the gospel of sinful people being redeemed by the blood of Jesus, repentance, and surrender is replaced with another gospel. <p> The problem with this book is that it covers an awful lot of ground for its size, and would be better suited as a larger volume which develops each step of the apostasy in greater detail. I came to this book knowing the subject matter from other books he and others have written, but I'm not sure that all readers will be able to connect the dots without a bit more information.

Product Overview

Is the emerging church movement just another passing fad, a more contemporary approach to church, or a bunch of disillusioned young people looking for answers? In fact, it is actually much broader and is influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful, yet highly deceptive, and it draws its energy from practices and experiences that are foreign to traditional evangelical Christianity. The path that the emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of Roman Catholicism and ultimately to an interfaith perspective that has prophetically profound ramifications.
