From the Back Cover
ìThese remarkable essays cover a spectrum of issues facing evangelicalism in North America. John Stackhouse is thoughtful and engaging, at times cranky, but always provocative.î óRandall Balmer, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of American Religion, Barnard College, Columbia University ìJohn Stackhouse is a model for evangelical scholars addressing an audience outside the guild. No scandal hereóunless evangelical readers fail to pay attention.î óJohn Wilson, editor, Books & Culture There are signs all around us that evangelicals are in a state of ìspiritual adolescenceî, charges John Stackhouse, and have been since breaking with fundamentalism a half century ago. In Evangelical Landscapes, he urges believers to develop a more sophisticated approach to worship and a more deeply felt sense of what it is to be a Christian.
Evangelical Landscapes explores the past and the present state of the evangelical movement in North America. It is intended to inform, inspire, and perhaps even lead to necessary change. Provocative chapters discuss the parachurch movement, ambivalence toward the Bible, money and theology, and whether evangelicals face an era of spiritual illiteracy and superstition.
Readers interested in the future of the evangelical movement will be challenged by this perceptive and engaging book. John G. Stackhouse, Jr. (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College. He is a contributing editor of Christianity Today and Books & Culture, and a regular columnist for Christian Week and Faith Today.
