Publisher's Description

On retrieving historic Protestant faith today

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 (post-Christian) context.

In his 2008 book The Courage to Be Protestant, David Wells issued a summons to return to the historic 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 in the last decade. On the cusp of the Protestant Reformation's 500th anniversary, there is no better time to hear Wells's clarion call to reclaim the historic, doctrinally serious Reformation faith in our fast-paced, technologically dominated, postmodern culture.

Author Bio

David F. Wells is the Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. An ordained Congregationalist minister, he is also the author of more than a dozen previous books.

Editorial Reviews

Theological Book Review
"The Courage to Be Protestant is an engaging and interesting book and deserves to be read by anyone interested in the current state and development of American evangelicalism."

Bibliotheca Sacra
"Fascinating and alarming. . . . [Wells's] warning should be taken seriously by all thinking Protestants."

Reformed Theological Review
"In an age that is awash with the desire to be relevant and post-confessional, David Wells's book is a necessary and brave corrective."
