According to Tim Challies, the upcoming book from Brian McLaren (Everything Must Change) includes the following priceless quote summarizing his view of the gospel:

“Believe this good news, and defect from all human imperial narratives, counternarratives, dual narratives, and withdrawal narratives.”

Besides the doctrinal evasiveness and/or impurity of much of the Emergent movement, the most annoying thing about these folks is the words they use — trendy words like conversation and narrative.  Sometimes I wish they would use normal words instead of the “hip” jargon that boring ol’ evangelicals just aren’t smart enough to employ.  Maybe then they would be relevant to the rest of us dunderheads.
