I received a request for Emerging Church books in Spanish...I'm at a loss here -- any ideas? Part of me wants to say 'no' -- don't let the English speakers influence the ongoing formation of your churches in Latin America and elsewhere. As a Southern Californian, I am saddened by the fact that so many people travel great distances to make pilgrimage at some of our megachurches. They later discover, after much expense, that these forms of church work with Anglo suburban baby boomers in America and not back home. My word to them is always, please, save your money, we need you need to teach us!!
However, I am ambivalent -- as Emerging Churches are urban and multi-cultural and connected globally, it ceases to be an Engish speaking movement (if it ever entirely was), at least that is the hope. It may not necessarily be oppressive to translate these works but perhaps liberating. So, I return to my original request -- any ideas on Emerging Church books in Spanish??
