Publisher's Description

Quo vadis?-Where are you going?-is an appropriate question to ask of the current evangelical movement. To get a bearing on evangelical thought and assess future directions, the editor of the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Andreas J. Köstenberger, has gathered selected addresses from past presidents of the ETS and contributed a thorough introduction and probing epilogue of his own. Covering the early years, the maturing movement, and recent times, the addresses-which span JETS' first fifty years-include discussions of foundational doctrinal issues, exegetical and theological practice and methodology, and current concerns delivered by some of evangelicalism's most distinguished leaders.

These presidential addresses give today's scholars a much fuller and deeper appreciation of the history of evangelicalism and their place within it. Readers will also experience great hope for the future of a movement whose best days, by God's grace, are yet to come.

Endorsements

“As one of the few surviving founders and charter members of the Evangelical Theological Society, it gives me great pleasure to recommend Quo Vadis, Evangelicalism? I hope this will help others to understand our stance and help us by the grace of God to fulfill our aims, to the glory of God.” -Roger Nicole, an ETS founder and its seventh president

“This is a valuable history. But more than that, it shows just how difficult it is to preserve Christian orthodoxy, constantly beset as it is by questions, challenges, and perplexities. This calls for fidelity and wisdom, and these presidents showed that they had what was needed.” -David F. Wells, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“John Stott once defined evangelicals as Bible people and gospel people. This anthology of ETS presidential addresses shows how these two lodestars---an unswerving commitment to the totally truthful Word of God written and the transforming message through the living Word of God, Jesus Christ---have guided the evangelical academy for the past half century.” -Timothy George, Beeson Divinity School

“During its almost sixty years of life, the Evangelical Theological Society has grown in numbers and in intellectual vitality, spiritual vision, and a strategic sense of mission to the wider church and the still wider world. This selection, ranging from the bright to the brilliant, celebrates and will surely further the Society’s ongoing progress.” -J. I. Packer, Regent College

“For those who think evangelical Christians are intellectually blinkered when they uphold the infallibility or inerrancy of Holy Scripture, this book should give genuine pause. It constitutes a veritable treasure trove of insights and reflections upon the meaning, import, and biblical warrant of the doctrine.” -John Woodbridge, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“These valuable essays recall the past, situate the present, and project the future of the Evangelical Theological Society and related institutions. They will help immensely in keeping a clear head and calm spirit about us as we move, as it seems, into times that are fraught with peril yet rich in promise.” -Robert W. Yarbrough, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
