Five Streams of the Emerging Church

Scot McKnight has a helpful article on the Christianity Today website, Five Streams of the Emerging Church.
  • Prophetic
  • Postmodern
  • Praxis-oriented
  • Post-evangelical
  • Political

His concluding paragraph:

All in all, it is unlikely that the emerging movement will disappear anytime soon. If I were a prophet, I'd say that it will influence most of evangelicalism in its chastened epistemology (if it hasn't already), its emphasis on praxis, and its missional orientation. I see the emerging movement much like the Jesus and charismatic movements of the 1960s, which undoubtedly have found a place in the quilt called evangelicalism.
