What did you think of the Rollins book? I have to organize a conference on Emerging Church for next summer, and I'm curious.

I enjoyed Pete's book. For a small tome, it is quite dense, especially the first half. The book is basically divided into two parts - the first half being theology, and the second have being some wonderful descriptions of different liturgies ikon (his community) has orchestrated.

The book doesn't come across as pissy at the evangelical world, as many emergent works do. And I'll be the first to admit that I fall in the camp of those pissy at the evangelical side of things, albeit far less often now than a year ago.

I've got his other two works, The Fidelity of Betrayal and The Orthodox Heretic in my stack to read before Greenbelt.
