Looking forward to reading this.

Why can't Evangelicals actually read the 'patron Saints' of so-called postmodernism--Derrida, Foucault, Heidegger, Nietzsche-- and the best literature on their thought and then criticize the Emergent Church for getting them wrong, which bad readings of their works is the cause of most of the philosophical problems with the movement? Put another way, why must Evangelicals who want to be respected as philosophically apt accept the bad readings of the Emergent Church and so-called postmodernism of the big philosophical names dropped as supposed support of Emergent or postmodern ideas? Just a question I continue to have as I read through what is supposed to be the best Evangelical works against so-called postmodernism...
