This made sense

Found on the blog of PTC Sydney(the Presbyterian college where I did my Hebrew)was this comment on the issue of the emergent church:

McKnight's take is that lots of the questions are post-fundamentalist. In Australia where fundamentalism has not been the same phenomenon the emerging issues are not the same.

This makes so much sense, and explains why a lot of the conversations on American theoblogs don't sound like they're happening on the same planet I'm on. It actually is the same planet, but a different continent!

Great thought Lynne!

I am a one-time-fundamentalist and do understand why people like McKnight and McLaren (is it a "Mc" thing?) are so successful with young folks who grew up in fundamentalist churches.
