Now, Carl Trueman suggests in The Real Scandal of the Evangelical Mind that the problem is exactly the opposite of what Noll diagnosed-evangelicals don't lack a mind, but rather an agreed upon evangel.
What Trueman sees is a number of PhD-toting Christians entering fully into the life of the secular academy and even teaching at the most prestigious research universities. What he doesn't see are Christian scholars standing up strongly for gospel distinctives.
We now have more and more evangelicals in the academy, yet somehow we are making less and less difference for Christ. It is time to stand apart on intellectual matters where our beliefs call us to-resisting the lure to sell out just fit in.

What is an evangelical . . . and has he lost his mind? Carl Trueman wrestles with those two provocative questions and concludes that modern evangelicals emphasize experience and activism at the expense of theology. Their minds go fuzzy as they downplay doctrine. The result is "a world in which everyone from Joel Osteen to Brian McLaren to John MacArthur may be called an evangelical."
Fifteen years ago in The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, historian Mark Noll warned that evangelical Christians had abandoned the intellectual aspects of their faith. Christians were neither prepared nor inclined to enter intellectual debates, and had become culturally marginalized. Trueman argues that today "religious beliefs are more scandalous than they have been for many years"--but for different reasons than Noll foresaw. In fact, the real problem now is exactly the opposite of what Noll diagnosed: evangelicals don't lack a mind, but rather an agreed upon evangel. Although known as gospel people, evangelicals no longer share any consensus on the gospel's meaning.
Provocative and persuasive, Trueman's indictment of evangelicalism also suggests a better way forward for those theologically conservative Protestants famously known as evangelicals.
