Liberal theologian Tony Campolo brings his philosophy of "red-letter Christianity" to bear in these short messages to young Christians. Putting special emphasis on those words the Bible attributes directly to Jesus (rather than those that He inspired others to write), Campolo extrapolates answers to some modern questions that Christians wrestle with today. A proponent of postmodernism, social justice and efforts to halt climate change, Campolo writes less to persuade and more to inform the reader about the social issues that he feels are most important to Evangelicals today.
Named by Christianity Today as one of the most influential preachers of the last fifty years, best-selling author Tony Campolo has spent decades calling on readers and audiences around the world to live their faith through committed activism. In Letters to a Young Evangelical, Campolo enjoins evangelicals young and old to resist the intimidating rhetoric of the Religious Right and think for themselves. With his trademark candor and wit, he offers sage advice to seekers who are trying to live their faith in a modern world that is politically polarized and predominantly secular. He is unafraid to touch on hot-button topics including abortion, gay marriage, the war in Iraq, women in the ministry, and relations between Christianity and Islam. An activist, a visionary, and a man of deep faith, Tony Campolo offers guidance not only for young evangelicals, but also for seekers of all ages and faiths.
