Scot McKnight has a very good post over at his site, Emerging and Orthodoxy 3. Scot does a great job of articulating what he believes are the four major impulses in the emerging movement, and how these lead to “slightly different interests in orthodoxy.” Read his post in whole, but Scot sees the four pulses as:

1. postmodern
2. praxis
3. postevangelical
4. political

I think that’s a pretty good description, and those are a lot of the reasons that I have been drawn to aspects of the emerging movement and have continually developed many friendships with others in this arena as well.
