The impending evangelical crisis

The evangelical church stands on the brink of a real crisis. Modern culture, with its 'soundbite' ideology, its consumerism, and its emphasis on 'feeling good' rather than thinking correctly, is making massive inroads into a church eager to attract people from the outside.

The result is, in many quarters, an uncritical abandonment of doctrinal emphases, of hard-headed theological thinking, and of historical evangelical identity, for an emphasis on experience over doctrine, and the 'feel-good factor' over thoughtfulness. In such a climate, theologians should have a key part to play in calling the church back to the Bible, and in helping it to think critically about its practices and agenda.
