The Other Journal has now posted “Poser Christianity,” my review of McCracken’s Hipster Christianity: When Church and Cool Collide.
The review goes in a particular direction, because I think McCracken was asking for it. But I should note that there are some points of overlapping concern. For example, I think McCracken is right to see certain renditions of the emerging church as basically just the successor to Willow-Creekish seeker-sensitivity. And I share his concern about Christian assimilation to cultural trends. We just disagree about what counts as “assimilation.”
