Four Views on the Spectrum of Evangelicalism
Edited by Collin Hansen and Andrew Naselli
Four Views on the Spectrum of Evangelicalism compares and contrasts four distinct positions on the current fundamentalist-evangelical spectrum in light of the history of American fundamentalism and evangelicalism. The contributors each state their case for one of four views on the spectrum of evangelicalism:
-Kevin T. Bauder: Fundamentalism
-R. Albert Mohler Jr.: Conservative/confessional evangelicalism
-John G. Stackhouse Jr.: Generic evangelicalism
-Roger E. Olson: Postconservative evangelicalism
Each author explains his position, which is critiqued by the other three authors. The interactive and fair-minded nature of the Counterpoints format allows the reader to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed, personal conclusions.
My friend Collin Hansen is one of the editors of this worthy volume, which will not be released until late September–but you can preorder it now. The galleys I received look substantive and thoughtful. More later.
