Kinda Christianity

An old friend from long ago is now the coolest author of books that analyze/criticize the Emergent/emerging church. And so naturally, not just because he is a friend, but also because he is a friend with some really important things to say to the 21st century American evangelical church, I'd like to commend one of his latest offerings to you ~ Kinda Christianity: A Generous, Fair, Organic, Free-Range Guide to Authentic Realness. Here's the book description, from its own Introduction:
So you're ready to take the plunge. Ready to translate your quest into action! Without defining yourself, and certainly without boxing yourself into one particular rigid way of doing theology or church, you're ready to become emergent. You have a username and clever screen name picked out at Emergent Village(tm), and maybe you've even begun having church in an empty warehouse in the industrial sector of your city. If so, good for you! But those are just the first, baby steps in your journey (your dance, if you will) into Kinda Christianity. This book will help you along the rest of your uniquely creative path to super-terrific self-discovery.

Looks interesting. Ted was a year ahead of me at Dallas. Do you know Zach?

Jerry-
Zach and I have never met, but I'm sure you're thinking of someone other than this Ted Kluck. He's only about 34, I think. Maybe you knew him via his parents? I think they still live in Hartford City.
