Item description for Faith Undone: The Emerging Church...a New Reformation or an End-Time Deception by Oakland Roger...
Overview Proponents of the emerging church say it is not a church at all-it's only a dialogue or conversation. Some say the emerging church is about reinventing Christianity for the 21st century. So what does that mean? Is it possible for Christianity to be reinvented and still be Christianity? Faith Undone answers these questions and shows how this movement is opening the doors for apostasy and deception within Christendom through mysticism, interspirituality and a denial of the very gospel message itself. Some of the issues Faith Undone addresses: * Contemplative spirituality and mysticism: The "life" of the emerging church * The new missiology of the emerging church: "You can keep your own religion; just add Jesus to the equation." * Eucharistic evangelization and the road to Rome * An Emergent View on the Future of Planet Earth * Purpose Driven Ecumenism: Part of the emerging church's new reformation * How to tell if the emerging church is emerging into your church
Publishers Description Is the emerging church movement just another passing fad, a more contemporary approach to church, or a bunch of disillusioned young people looking for answers? In fact, it is actually much broader and is influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful, yet highly deceptive, and it draws its energy from practices and experiences that are foreign to traditional evangelical Christianity. The path that the emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of Roman Catholicism and ultimately to an interfaith perspective that has prophetically profound ramifications.

An excellent book. God obviously helped Roger Oakland and opened his eyes to help all wish to know the truth of the emergent church, along with the false teaching and teachers the Bible speaks of.
More Catholic Bashing Mar 30, 2008
I read this book because it was given to me..and I promptly used it as kindling in my fireplace. I am confused as to what Bible that the author uses...because mine says Christ told the apostles that "this is my Body given up for you" as he broke bread, and said "this is my Blood, which was shed so all can be forgiven"....if you want to parse words or meaning, take it up with Christ. The Catholic Church simply does what Christ asks us all to do and resists altering His Word and by keeping the faith as it was when Christ asked the Apostles to continue to grow the faithful. It seems to me that by bashing another Christian Faith, that YOU are not keeping Christ's commandment..that you love one another!! The Catholic Church has kept the faith as Christ left it, and plans to keep it that way until Christ returns in Glory! I don't know what faith Mr. Oakland belongs to, but you can be sure his church history can be counted in days, not centuries!
The Perfect Encouragement for Some of Us "Old Fogies" Mar 29, 2008
Mr Oakland has been known to be "uninvited" to speak to some modern religious gatherings because he insists on speaking the Truth and using scripture passages to remind us of what the Bible really says.
If you have been wrinkling your forehead and wondering at the doctrines and opinions coming from the "emerging church", this book will help you remember why many things sounded strange to you. It will also encourage you to continue in your own study so as not to be led astray.
Very informative Mar 4, 2008
This is a very informative book, and I think it is the most important book that Roger Oakland has written. It opened my eyes to some of the things that are going on today, and I highly recommend it.
From what I have observed, it seems common for Emerging Church followers to say that those who critique The Emerging Church are "taking things out of context", yet I have never heard ANY of them tell what is being taken out of context. It just seems to be their standard response (a cop-out) when they can't give an honest defense for what they believe.
So I recommend that people check out this book before believing any accusations that have been made about Roger Oakland. He critiques The Emerging Church in a very fair manner, and unless anyone can tell him what is being taken out of context, his stance will rightly remain the same.
