Important New Book on Evangelicalism
My colleague over at the North Park Theological Seminary, Soong-Chan Rah, has written an important book on the future of evangelicalism. The book is called The Next Evangelicalism: Freeing the Church from Western Cultural Captivity. It is an eye opening exposé on western-white evangelicalism in America. On the one hand, it exposes the unrecognized cultural captivity of the church and the Gospel. On the other, it introduces us to the often unseen growth of the non-white evangelical church in urban centers in the United States. Both an informative and challenging book that is a must read for pastors and church leaders.
