Self-identifying as 'evangelical' is risky business these days. What is Evangelicalism? Is it a historical artifact? A political philosophy? A set of doctrines? A litmus test for genuine faith? Perhaps more important, what will come to mind when future generations hear something described as 'evangelical'? The authors of Routes and Radishes approach this issue from various points of influence within evangelical organizations, denominations, and institutions. They believe that the historical distinctive of Evangelicalism is too powerful and too positive to be abandoned. Yet they all desire that the Evangelicalism of the future break away from common pitfalls in the task of loving people toward a vital relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Each author brings a different but vital perspective to the conversation this book represents. They chart a path that, while not monolithic, takes seriously the past and potential of the evangelical movement. Furthermore, they invite you to digest, participate, question, and make the future of Evangelicalism a meaningful part of your walk of faith.
