The Rise of the Creative Class & The Emergent Church

A few years ago, Richard Florida wrote a book called The Rise of the Creative Class. It describes the changes taking place in our society as “millions of Americans are beginning to work and live the way creative people like artists and scientists always have” (from back cover). It is interesting to read the book and see the parallels occurring in the Western & American church with the rise of emergents. For all of the fuss that is made about the emergents by many in the establishment, Florida’s book will help explain why the emergents have emerged and will continue to gain influence. Face it “established ones,” culture is changing and so is the church.
