In 1990 a gathering of evangelical theologians assembled chiefly for the purpose of defining “evangelical” concluded that such definition was practically impossible to accomplish in the movement’s current condition. In 1992 Christianity Today ran a cover story with the headline, “evangelical Megashift,” announcing the growing popularity of relational and therapeutic categories over the traditional theological […]

MR: Why did you launch Christianity Today? CH: The magazine had several sponsors-notably Billy Graham and his father-in-law, Dr. L.

MR: In Amusing Ourselves to Death, you have a chapter on the influence of entertainment on religion. Do you think that modernity comes to us in stealthlike fashion, and sometimes Christians and other groups can be naive in viewing style as neutral?

As “people of the Book,” American evangelicals have also been people of books. In order to take the Word of God seriously, they have taken seriously the words of others, recognizing the vital importance of stimulating reading in the development of godly minds. In 1956, Christianity Today was founded on the premise that conservative Protestantism […]
