The Great Emergence and the rise of Emergence Christianity are an expression of a 500-year cycle in the church’s history, but perhaps also something more. In fact, the time we are entering might be as significant as the Great Transformation 2000 years ago. What does it mean to say that we seem to be moving into the time of the Spirit?
Phyllis Tickle is the author of over two dozen books, most recently The Great Emergence: How Christianity is changing and why. She also speaks and lectures around the world and is frequently quoted in major print and electronic media about western Christianity and the changes currently taking place within it.
