For the Atlanta Emergent Cohort in the months of September and October we will be discussing the unpublished edition of Scot McKnight's new book on Atonement. Abingdon Press has invited out cohort to read, discuss for the purpose of engaging the book with the Emergent Conversation before its final edits.
We will meet this month on the usual last Tuesday, Sept 26 at 5 Seasons Brewing, located in the Prado on Roswell Road (for you Northies to get there), from 8-10 pm.
We will start the discussion next week, September 26, and you are encouraged to begin reading the attached parts. We will guide September's introductory discussion around the Prologue and Part 1: "Atonement and Emergence: Where Are We?" Anyone is welcome to join us, read what you can and be a part of making this book happen.
The full discussion with guests from Abingdon Press and free drinks (from Abingdon) will be in October, earlier in the month, Tuesday October 17th location TBA.
Our input from both conversations will be sent back to McKight & Abingdon and reflected in the final edits of the book.
There is a Prologue and five parts, please download them in PDF form below. Please erase these when we are done on the 17th (so pay good attention and rememer what you can). They will not be available after October 17, and we have been asked not to post contents of the book yet or to pass it along to anyone. The published manuscript is due to be out in 2007 (so be fair and be patient).
