Evangelicalism in America has cracked. What defines the evangelical social and political vision—is it the gospel or is it culture? Edited by Mark Labberton, this collection of essays offers a diverse and provocative set of reflections from evangelical insiders who wrestle with the question of what it means to be evangelical in today's polarized climate.
Perceiving a disconnect between their Protestant tradition and ancient Christianity, some evangelicals have abandoned Protestantism for traditions that appear more rooted in the early church. Arguing for the rich Protestant connections to early Christianity, Ken Stewart surveys five centuries church history and claims a place for evangelicals at the ecumenical table.
Christians tend to divide into three camps: evangelical, sacramental, and pentecostal. But must we choose between them? Drawing on the New Testament, Christian history, and years of experience in Christian ministry, Gordon T. Smith argues that the church not only can be all three, but in fact must be all three in order to truly be the church.
