I was a little surprised to see Daniel Williams included in that project. I've always been a big fan of his writing on "Tradition" because it emphasizes the importance of doctrine and creeds, making sure we self-consciously stand in-line with what the Patristic church confessed.

But...I have often been a little more skeptical of Webber's ancient-future work, for reasons that were hard to pin down, but I think Moore has nailed it. It seems like the emerging emphasis on ancient stuff is more "ancient in style" than "ancient in beliefs." In other words, they like the aesthetics of Tradition, but are more selective in the doctrines of Tradition.
