The Futures of evangelicalism
Issues And Prospects
Craig Bartholomew, Robin Parry and Andrew West Andrew West Andrew West
Evangelical Christianity made great strides during the latter half of the twentieth century, to become, in the words of Alister McGrath, 'the largest and most actively committed form of Christianity in the West'. This very growth, however, has brought its own problems, and there is a widespread felling that Western evangelicalism is now at something of a crossroads.
Whatever the precise reasons for the present challenges, this is undoubtedly a time for reflection - on the route evangelicals have traveled, on the gains made, and on the possible future prospects in key areas.
The contributors to this volume all share the conviction that evangelicalism is the tradition that is most biblical and true to the Christian faith. They address eleven topics of fundamental importance, with a view to outlining a programmatic agenda for future developments, as a stimulus for constructive reflection and debate among church members within evangelicalism and beyond.
