Publisher's Description

So you have a problem with evangelical Christians? Which ones? These are the provocative questions Tom Krattenmaker poses to his fellow progressives in The Evangelicals You Don t Know. He challenges stereotypes about evangelical Christians and introduces readers to a movement of new evangelicals who are bringing forth a non-partisan expression of evangelicalism and creating opportunities for alliances and partnerships to advance the common good. Krattenmaker argues that cultural fault lines no longer divide the religious from the secular, or the evangelicals from everyone else. Rather, the lines that matter now run between the fundamentalist culture warriors of both the left and right on one side, and, on the other, the good-doers of any faith, or none, who want to work together to solve our society s problems and introduce a new civility and decency to our shared national life. Krattenmaker is one of the best-informed non-evangelicals writing about evangelicalism in American public life. He offers interesting stories, intriguing character sketches, and incisive writing in his readable and engaging book. Recounting the findings and insights gleaned from his many years of engagement with evangelical America, he draws conclusions sure to surprise, challenge, and even inspire non-evangelicals who had written off this controversial and influential faith movement. The Evangelicals You Don t Know offers a refreshing alternative to narratives that pay attention only to aspects of evangelicalism that are most distasteful and threatening to secular-progressives and liberal religionists providing instead a hopeful introduction to promising new currents rising among theologically conservative Christians.

    As an evangelical, I greatly appreciate my friend Tom Krattenmaker's latest book. His opening questions are worth repeating: "So you have a problem with evangelical Christians? Which ones?" With important content on almost every page, and nearly 18 pages of endnotes, Tom definitely did his homework. Quotes from Kevin Palau, Ken Weigel, Paul Louis Metzger, Tony Kriz, Lisa Sharon Harper, Dan Merchant, Micheal Flaherty, Lora Wiens, Shane Claiborne, Stephanie Tama-Sweet, Gabe Lyons, David Kinnaman, Jim Daly, Julie Clawson, Kevin Kelly and others pepper this book. So do critiques of contemporary progressives/secularists who blast evangelicals in general without having taken the time to get to meet with, let alone get to know, any of today's "new evangelicals." Definitely don't miss Chapter 5, Confession Booth, where the author lists the top 7 sins of American evangelicals. This book should be required reading by every contemporary American thought leader regardless of his or her religious persuasion...
