Emerging Solutions?and Problems -

Carson gives credit to the emerging church for honestly trying to read the culture. They are also thinking through the implications of this reading for our witness, our theology, our churchmanship, even our self-understanding. However, his main concern is that in the course of engaging with culture by means of postmodern analysis, too much has been conceded. In missional terms, McLaren and other writers he cites have allowed postmodern culture to determine the message (naïve contextualization), rather than addressing this culture with their message. Carson faults them for their analysis of culture, and then for the inadequacy of their solutions. In Carson's analysis, these solutions, with their eclectic appeal to tradition, skirt the truth claims of Scripture.
