Publisher's Description

Voted one of Christianity Today's 1997 Books of the Year! Decades ago, evangelicalism was given up for dead in the academy. But since World War II, evangelical intellectualism has made a surprising comeback. Esteem has been regained especially in such disciplines as history and philosophy. Now evangelical theologians are making their bid for academic respectability. A Passion for Truth, written by one of evangelicalism's outstanding younger theologians, seeks to show that the movement has in its heritage excellent resources to engage the scholarly debates of the day. McGrath first sets forth the constructive ground on which evangelicalism stands, then shows how this revivified school of thought might respond to such important theological and cultural realities as postmodernism, religious pluralism and postliberalism. His book is fresh and exciting evidence that evangelicalism is coming of age.

He is in constant demand as a speaker at conferences throughout the world and is the author of many books including and .

Editorial Reviews

"McGrath establishes the uniqueness of Jesus and the authority of Scripture as theological distinctives central to evangelical theology. He then explores the ways in which that theology is distinguished from, yet might fruitfully engage, the positions of the other three. The result is an exploration of postmodernism, postliberalism and religious pluralism that is a significant confirmation of the health and vigor of contemporary evangelical thinking."
