Evangelicals and the Early Church: Recovery, Reform, Renewal Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Believing in the incarnation, the trinity, the resurrection and the authority of Scripture is not what I'm talking about. These things are common to all (most?) versions of modern Christanity. To be frank the early church was sacramental, hierarchical, ascetic and credal. Nobody disputes this! Evangelicalism is none of these things. It is clear that any direct connection is tenuous at best. Of course, you can claim that Evangelicals 'fixed' things after they were 'corrupted' so Evangelicals are the new, improved (and American) version of 'true' Christianity.
I borrowed this book from a friend but I won't buy a copy for myself. It is worth reading just to see how Evangelicals are coming to grips with the difficult question of their connection to early Christianity. To be honest I wasn't impressed by any article. This volume is best appreciated by those who already have a good grounding in the history of the early church, the ecumenical councils and early church theology (and disputes).
