Emergent and Her Critics: Metaconversation toward Conversation

It would be interesting to see a publication of 4 views on "orthodox" doctrines from some of these "characters" so people who are confused could see that some of this stuff is so misunderstood. I get frustrated sometimes when the orthodox/unorthodox terms get thrown around when it merely has to do with preferences over reformed or not reformed, or different views on the atonement or whatever. As I read Brett's paper, I got a little frustrated that he uses McLaren's fictional characters as arguments for McLaren's theology. Why do people continually do this? Anyway, it would be interesting for a broader conversation about "what is considered orthodox." Tony continues to say over and over, "I hold to the trinity." But, people keep questioning that. Remarkable.
