I just read "A Christianity Worth Believe" by Doug Pagitt; he is a leader in the emerging Church movement. The book is about his struggle with the literalism that he encountered as an Evangelical, and his new reformed and broader view of the Christian Faith. The book has a good start, pointing out the limited view of typical Evangelicalism, and Biblicalism, but Pagitt never builds a method and case for change. Instead he gives his personal testimony, and opinion, of how God should be understood, and the Bible read. The trajectory of his thought is an improvement over the literalism he correctly rejects, but as a work for guiding the Church it is very incomplete.
