In this inaugural volume in the Prophetic Christianity series fifteen contributors share their visions for a biblically centered, culturally engaged, and historically infused evangelicalism. Interacting with a wide variety of influential thinkers, they articulate several approaches to creating a socially responsible, gospel-centric, and ecumenical evangelical identity.Raymond C.

These insightful essays speak to significant topics dealing with justice, peace, and the common good. More importantly, they demonstrate that the concern for such matters can be pursued with uniquely evangelical convictions and sensitivities. I hope this volume will be read widely--both by evangelicals and by those who need to see evangelicalism at its best!

For those on the right or the left who think evangelicals cannot be progressive --hearken! This spritely and sophisticated volume leaps nonpolemically beyond the stale deadlock to a creation-loving, Jesus-following, woman-empowering, justice-making, hope-stirring, truly prophetic theology: news indeed.
Drew Theological School
Creation. Justice. Good News. Shalom. Resurrection. These and other core theological concepts form a rich tapestry of creative and engaging evangelical ethics in this new book by a younger generation of scholars. Deeply biblical and passionately engaged, these visionaries are anything but removed from God's world...If you are interested in what kingdom values look like in our broken world, read this book.
