Michael Haykin reviews Brian McLaren's "Finding Our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices"

You can find it here at the Andrew Fuller centre. Well worth a read. Here's the blurb:
"The first review is Dr. Haykin’s review article on Brian McLaren’s Finding Our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices which appears in the current issue (Summer 2008) of The Southern Baptist Journal of Theology. As you will be able to tell if you take the time to read the article, it is not a recommendation of McLaren’s use of “Ancient” church history. Instead, you will find a devastating critique of the whole emergent co-opting of the practices of the ancient church by a historical scholar trained in the field of Patristics.

Don’t miss this review, and continue to check back periodically as more reviews will be added every one or two weeks. Future reviews will generally be recommendatory of various works on Baptist history in particular, or church history in general."
