I didn't feel it necessary to identify DeYoung's position on Emergence or give the title, but you are correct. I also note that in his own blog he refers to himself as "DeYoung, Restless, and Reformed."

For any who care, I was encouraged by the issues raised and direction generally taken by those who were merely "emerging" while generally to greatly concerned about those who were under the mantle of the Emergent Village. I liked DeYoung's book, but note that it was written almost entirely to the errors and direction of the Emergent while written as if it applied equally to anything called emerging.

On a separate note, it is interesting that the term "reformed" is not simply a variation of Presbyterian or even Calvinist in general. It dates back to groups that were clearly NOT Calvinist and is used currently by both Calvinist and non-Calvinist (or marginally Calvinist) groups.

The Bible churches are not strictly Calvinist but would probably classify as reformed. And they are not all the same on many issues. I have attended two where the pastors were raised Presbyterian but the congregations would only be somewhat Calvinist. And they differ strongly on the issue of women teaching/preaching.
I once thought I was. . . . but I may have been mistaken Edge (with apologies)
