On my very first visit to Demergent Churches, I found these gems:
Interview with Bryan McFerrin, Part 1 "It's a Conversation"
Interview with Bryan McFerrin Pt. 2 Avoiding the Question
Interview with Bryan McFerrin Pt. 3: Is Emergent Actually Modernist

Phil Johnson is all over the Fad-Driven® Church again.
Shall we sell our birthright for a mess of faddage?

Something I should have linked to a long time ago is Mark's series on Ruth at 3:17. He is well into it, having reached chapter 4 today, but I encourage you to go back and read the previous installments as well.
Ruth Chapter 4 - The Redeemer Redeems

Finally, here is my imitation of Phil Johnson (minus the Hawiian shirt - I agree with Phil on matters of faith, but not practice):
Jeff Lacher thinks I'm great. He also wears a kilt and collects midieval weaponry, which I think is cool. His weblog is well worth a visit.

Anonymous Doug sayth,

Not to step on any more toes than I must, but if links are how most blogs guage importance, and if there were... say... a blog that was the current buzz, and if that buzzy blogger was willing to link to anyone who mentioned his blog for any reason, wouldn't that create a multitude of incoming links?

Phil has some great content on his blog. I'd like to see a bit more of it.

Thanks for the praise and the link. Much appreciated.

Doug - Yes, it would, and yes, he does, and so would I. Concerning the first, Phil has said he was going to cut back on the BlogSpotting.

Mark - Your blog is of the noncontroversial type that people like me read and think, "That was really good," but don't leave comments on, leaving you to wonder if anyone cares. Well, for the record, teaching from the Bible is worth many times more than any commentary on current issues, as valuable as that is. I wish I had your gift for it.
