The Great Emergence

A provocative book “The Great Emergence” by Phyllis Tickle attempts to examine the ways religion has changed and is changing today.  She especially examines Christianity in what is known as the Western world. She finds that about every 500 years, a shift happens and the old paradigm bursts and a new way of being Christian in the world emerges out of its chrysalis and the new ‘butterfly’ takes flight. I found this examination useful and set me to wondering and watching to see what will emerge.
