Editorial Reviews


Preaching MagazineBooks Every Preacher Should Read (2009)

Calvin Theological Journal
“An importantly different book.
Theological Book Review
The Courage to Be Protestant is an engaging and interesting book and deserves to be read by anyone interested in the current state and development of American evangelicalism.”
Bibliotheca Sacra
“Fascinating and alarming. . . . [Wells’] warning should be taken seriously by all thinking Protestants.”
Reformed Theological Review
“In an age that is awash with the desire to be relevant and post-confessional, David Wells’ book is a necessary and brave corrective.”
