Publisher's Description

At its heart, the Protestant Reformation was about a deep, doctrinally shaped faith centered on God and his Word. But that historic, substantive faith is not faring so well in our contemporary Western context.

In his 2008 book The Courage to Be Protestant, David Wells issued a summons to return to the historic Protestant faith, defined by the Reformation solas (grace, faith, and Scripture alone) and by a high regard for doctrine. In this thoroughly reworked second edition, Wells presents an updated look at the state of evangelicalism and the changes that have taken place since the original publication of his book.

There is no better time than now to hear and heed Wells's clarion call to reclaim the historic, doctrinally serious Reformation faith in our fast-paced, technologically dominated, postmodern culture.

David F. Wells is distinguished senior research professor at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, Massachusetts, and an ordained Congregationalist minister. His many previous books include Above All Earthly Pow'rs, Losing Our Virtue, God in the Wasteland, and No Place for Truth.

Editorial Reviews

Richard Lints
— editor of Renewing the Evangelical Mission
"For a generation David Wells has chronicled the serious loss of a theological center in the evangelical movement and pointed at the need to recover the doctrinal rigor of its Protestant heritage. In this second edition of The Courage to Be Protestant, Wells updates his call to be faithful to the doctrinal shape of Protestantism by critically analyzing the developments in the evangelical world as it has become increasingly immersed and enmeshed in a culture devoid of theological concerns. In a post-truth world, Wells's stinging critique must be taken seriously."
