“Come on now, how can you, as an evangelical Protestant, speak seriously about the unity of the church? You can hardly agree on anything amongst yourselves!” So guffawed my English Catholic friend whose recent “homecoming” to Rome from Evangelicalism bore all the enthusiasm of a neophyte–along with acute knowledge of the perceived issues and real […]

Institutions are in trouble these days and professionals are suspect. The political, legal, financial, educational, and even charitable realms of the western world are crumbling. A lack of moral integrity is at the core of this disintegration. This is sad to admit, but it is true–and not only the “have-nots” and the cynics acknowledge it. […]

What is-or better, who comprises-Evangelicalism? An increasing number of books describe evangelical theology, record evangelical history, warn of evangelical hubris, and debate the future of Evangelicalism. But, can we even define an evangelical?

This is a good, big book. The second volume of John Frame's Theology of Lordship Series is firmly Reformed, outspoken, and diffident by turn, fresh in approach, richly biblical, mostly clear. It is the sort of book that informs and provokes thought. In this short review I shall endeavor to sketch the approach and the […]

If James Hunter's 1987 book, Evangelicalism: The Coming Generation, was not a bomb on the happy playground of American evangelicals, it was at least a powerful grenade. In that book, as well as his 1983 work, American Evangelicalism: Conservative Religion and the Quandary of Modernity, Hunter set out to demonstrate that the theological and moral […]
