New Book Alert

As you all know, I am a big fan of all things book. More so, I'm a fan of theology books. Here is a new book that I'm sure will get a lot of people talking in the blogosphere. From Green Baggins blog, he loves to talk about new books. He's made mention of a new book coming from Crossway (who else?)

Reforming or Conforming? Post-Conservative Evangelicals and the Emerging Church seems to be a book many people will be talking about. The description says:
In Reforming or Conforming?, scholars such as John Bolt, Scott Clark, Paul Helm, and Paul Helseth join editors Gary Johnson and Ron Gleason in analyzing and critiquing the ideas of those who promote postmodernism as a positive force in theology. Pastors, laymen, and college students will find this book a helpful resource in understanding and refuting postmodern evangelicalism. Includes a foreword by David F. Wells.

Sounds like another book that will get both sides going. I've seriously wanted to have a different book out there. I would call it "The other side of the conversation". It could be a dialogue in book form between two parties. Or a point counter point format. Not too dissimilar from the Opposing views series Zondervan has. Any takers? I would love for this to be the blog that got that going. I have someone in mind that would love to do it. He's a genius friend of mine. I'm taking offers.
