9780310253853: The Post-Evangelical (Emergent YS)

You believe in the God of the Bible---but you cringe when church leaders oversimplify, trivialize, and absolutize the faith. You're not alone. You're likely among an increasing number of post-evangelicals: Christians growing restless within the bounds of the evangelical orthodoxy they were raised in or trained in---especially its culturally-influenced precepts and mores---and thirsting for something deeper. Something that makes sense. Author Dave Tomlinson encountered these same issues in Great Britain as he approached the writing of The Post-Evangelical. He quickly discovered that many in the church are hungering for a safe place to express their questions, doubts, and insights without being branded 'liberals' or---worse yet---'heretics.' Far from skewering its subject, The Post-Evangelical actually endorses steps toward rather that away from the roots of evangelicalism---while stridently challenging its man-made rules and regulations that have, for all intents and purposes, become 'gospel.' A best-seller and paradigm-buster in the U.K. for several years, we now present the expanded and updated North American edition of The Post-Evangelical. It includes: * A forward by Dallas Willard and an updated introduction. * Sidebar commentary from Mark Galli, Timothy Keel, Doug Pagitt, Mike Yaconelli, and Holly Rankin Zaher. * A completely new chapter on the history of evangelicalism in the U.S. If you've wandered from the evangelical fold---publicly or privately---you're not necessarily a backslider. Spend some time with The Post-Evangelical and be encouraged.

'A thought-provoking glimpse into contemporary evangelical Christianity in an increasingly postmodern culture....[It] will challenge assumptions you may have that you were previously unaware of....A worthwhile stimulus for the starting place -- asking important questions.' -- Enrichment journal
